Thermal Auricular Therapy (Ear Candling)
A wonderful relaxing, non-invasive treatment
Ear Candles are hollow tubes of organically grown cotton flax, extracts of honey, beeswax and some also contain herbs. When you are comfortably lying on your side with blankets and pillows to support, the Ear Candle is gently inserted into your ear.
When lit, the candle creates a ‘chimney effect’. This action draws out impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. The rising air inside the candle sets up a vibration which gently massages the eardrum. This can help to regulate the pressures involved inside the ear.
The air flow within the candle creates a concentrated vapour which is soothing, calming and protects the irritated areas. Most impurities or deposits are carried away through the candle ‘chimney’, although some of these deposits can be found within the candle after removed from the ear. It can take between 24-48 hours for some of the wax to work its way to the surface. This treatment also includes a short facial massage with lymphatic drainage.
