Ear candling is an ancient practice that has been used for centuries in many cultures throughout the world. They are hollow tubes made from unbleached cotton or linen and hardened with beeswax. Helps with sinus problems, snoring, tinnitus and balance issues and can help with relaxation to help with sleep.
You need to be able to lie on your side on a massage couch. A protective cloth with a slit in it will be placed over the ear. The ear candle will be lit and gently inserted into the opening of the ear. Once treatment is completed, it will be repeated on the other ear. During treatment you may experience gentle heat around the ear area. You may hear popping sounds and a pleasant crackling as the ingredients are burning. Once completed we look at what has come from the ear into the candle. Not recommended if you have an ear infection.
This treatment takes 45 mins to 60 mins depending on the client’s needs.
As with all treatments, a full consultation should be completed with your therapist to ensure that ear candling is right for you.
