Ear Candles - Children
(Thermo-auricular therapy)

 

25-40 minutes (depending on candle burn time) £25

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 stay with your child for the duration of their treatment.

Your child will lie on a massage couch on their side with their shoes removed and will remain fully clothed throughout the treatment.

 

A small, brightly coloured ear candle is gently placed about a quarter-inch into your childs 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 draws out any wax, candida, yeast and other debris that may be lodged in the ear canal.

 

This is then repeated on the second ear.

The treatment is completed with a light pressured, relaxing lymph drainage massage to the face (approx. 8-10 minutes) which encourages anything which has been dislodged to be drained into the lymphatic system to be eliminated through your childs waste.

 

This is a lovely, relaxing treatment for both adults and children.
