Ear candles are designed to help treat conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat. They are particularly good for conditions such as sinus problems, compacted ear wax, tinnitus and headaches.
They can also be used to promote deep relaxation and is thought to have therapeutic benefits which can help to relieve stress and revitalise the body, which is further enhanced by the scent of herbs and essential oils from the candle itself.
What to expect
You will lie on a treatment couch on your side with your shoes removed and will remain fully clothed throughout the treatment.
An ear candle is gently placed about a quarter-inch into the ear and lightly twisted so a seal is formed. The ear candle is then lit, allowing the flame to pass down the candle’s hollow centre deeper into the ear canal. A vacuum effect is created (‘chimney effect’), which helps to gently release any wax, candida, yeast, and other debris that may be lodged in the ear canal.
This is then repeated on the other ear.
As a Massage Therapist, I always like to complete this treatment with a relaxing lymph drainage massage to the face which takes approximately 10-15 minutes. This encourages anything which has been dislodged by the ear candle to be drained into the lymphatic system and be eliminated through your waste.
This is a peaceful and very relaxing treatment.
