Ear Care

Wellbeing's specialist Ear Care service offers both Microsuction, as a solution to clearing blocked ears; and custom made ear moulds, to protect your ears from water and noise exposure. We have clinics in Chelmsford, Colchester and South Woodham Ferrers - offering appointments with experienced Audiologists and ENT Doctors to give your ears the best possible care.


Microsuction involves the use of a powerful microscope to see directly into the ear, which allows your clinician to safely remove the build-up of wax or foreign body with a small suction device. This popular and safe technique is the gold standard for ear wax removal.

If you have been told you have a build-up of wax in one or both ears, or are experiencing hearing loss and a blocked feeling in your ear, our Microsuction service could restore your hearing.

Custom Ear Moulds

Our custom ear moulds are perfect for protecting your ears against water or loud noises, which can in some cases cause lasting damage to your ears.

Custom ear moulds fit each of your ears individually and offer greater protection than a standard ear plug. Custom ear moulds are also particularly useful if you; have a perforated ear drum, have previously had surgery on the ear, or have had grommets fitted and been advised to keep the ear as dry as possible. 

Wellbeing's ear moulds come in a range of colours and will be created for you by our Audiologist in a single 15 minute appointment, ready for you to take home with you.

    Customer Feedback...

    • My Mum attended A&E on Sunday as she was feeling dizzy and unwell.  She had a thorough check over and was discharged but told that her ears were blocked.  She attended her GP on Monday who could not help, I phoned Wellbeing on Tuesday morning and was able to an appointment with Jo later that day and it has made a huge improvement for her. Many thanks.

      I'd been putting off going to my GP for a very long time but when my wife mentioned Wellbeing and that I could get an appointment the same week I thought I might as well go for it. I'm so glad I did, my Wellbeing Audiologist was so knowledgeable and took the time to explain both the Microsuction procedure and my condition to me. Understanding why my ears give me so much trouble also put my mind at rest, which has made me a lot happier

    • The speed of service, the professionalism shown and the care taken to assess my injuries were second to none. The advice given by Wellbeing helped vastly speed up my recovery and the ongoing support has been invaluable.
      Mike, Colchester
      Thank you for seeing and assessing me so promptly. You really put my mind at ease and prevented an unnecessary trip to the GP which as it turns out would not have yielded any benefit or sorted out the problem I came to you about.
      Happy Customer, Chelmsford
    • I found your service thorough and professional. Additionally, I was really delighted to be able to have the time to discuss fully the issues with such an experienced professional. Indeed, following the assessment the advice and treatment you recommended appear to have sorted out a long term problem that was getting worse and causing me increasing pain and discomfort. Many thanks.
      Jackie, Colchester
