Health and Personal

Matt lives on a farm on the north coast of Northern Ireland with his wife and 4 children. This gives him the ideal plentiful space for his DIY projects and to play the drums – with the appropriate hearing protection of course! Matt plays drums at his local church.

Wax removal available

Sometimes, the primary cause for hearing loss is a build-up of wax inside your ear canal. With the precision of micro suction, we offer an ear wax removal service. This is a less invasive technique than syringing and allows us to provide you with instant relief. If you are prone to ear wax build-up or are a hearing aid user, you should get your ears checked annually.
