This is a charming little shop on Trafalgar street, specialising in traditional Chinese herbal remedies. The only treatments I’ve bought from here are their ear cones – they’re like tall, thin, hollow wax candles that you place inside your ear and set alight. As they burn, they create a soft current that draws wax and all manner of nasty things out of your ear, while clearing your sinuses.
You can buy the candles here to do yourself at home (which I wouldn’t recommend unless you know exactly what you’re doing), or for just an extra £2-3, they’ll do the candles for you in one of their little rooms at the back. Sounds a little bit weird, but it’s actually a very pleasurable experience – you’ll feel rather lightheaded afterwards and it’s a great way of releasing pressure and tension in your sinuses.
