Earworx is celebrating the upcoming opening of its new Western Australia clinic in Inglewood on 3rd of June, 2021. Patients of the Inglewood clinic will be welcomed by the compassionate and knowledgeable Tabitha Blake who joins us from St John of God Hospital Midland.
Tabitha and the team are eagerly anticipating the opening of clinic doors so they can help ease the pain and discomfort felt by blocked ear sufferers. Positioned on the bustling main drag of Beaufort Street, the Inglewood clinic will operate from the 3rd of June this year.
Joining the Inglewood clinic in Perth will be an additional Earworx clinic in Joondalup, set to open its doors on the very same day. Both clinic openings are an exciting step for the Earworx family as we strive to deliver our professional ear wax removal to residents on the west coast.
Tabitha is a registered nurse with extensive experience in a range of healthcare settings including hospitals and clinics. Prior to joining the Earworx team, Tabitha worked at St John of God Hospital Midland and Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital, and gained experience in both public acute medical wards and private surgical wards.
Tabitha obtained her Bachelor of Science specialising in Nursing from Edith Cowan University. Before undertaking this study, she completed a Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled Division 2 Nursing) and Certificate III in Aged Care (Nursing assistant).
Tabitha’s calm and compassionate nature put her patients instantly at ease. She possesses excellent communication skills and always provides information in a clear and concise way to ensure all patients feel comfortable and confident prior to their Earworx procedure.

What happens at my Earworx appointment?
You’ll be welcomed by our warm and friendly front desk staff who will ask you to complete some forms. Tabitha will then invite you in to the clinic room and begin by working through your form with you, answering any questions and then carefully examining both ears.
As earwax plays an integral role in the healthy function of our ears, Earworx ensures that removal is only recommended where clinically indicated e.g., the wax is causing uncomfortable symptoms or is preventing needed assessment of the ear. If we don’t detect an excess of ear wax, we’ll even reduce your appointment fee – so you have nothing to lose! – and education will be provided.
The process itself is relatively quick, is gentle and dry, and is typically completed within just thirty minutes. Tabitha will use a micro-suction device and fine instruments to gently suction ear wax from the ear canal – all while directly observing your ear canals through use of a pair of binocular glasses, known as loupes. Following the procedure Tabitha will provide expert guidance and tips on how to care for your ears moving forward.
Symptoms of Earwax Build Up
If your ear’s ‘self cleaning’ mechanism is not working effectively (which it does for by far the majority) you may start to develop feelings of discomfort and hearing loss. Typically, these symptoms also includes a feeling of itching, ringing or blockage, as well as possible feelings of imbalance and dizziness.
It can be tempting to try removing the built-up wax yourself. However, this is not without its risks. Inserting anything into the delicate ear canal apart from earwax softening drops, can worsen symptoms by pushing wax further into the ear canal. It can even cause permanent damage. Our nurses are trained in the safe and gentle removal of earwax so you can be free of discomfort in no time.
