Ear Candling

It is a non-invasive holistic treatment which can help relieve ear, nose and throat conditions, and restore a sense of balance and wellbeing. Ear candling will help to strengthen the immune system, regulate ear pressure, and stimulate healing acupuncture points and reflexology zones. It can help with the following conditions:

  • Excessive earwax/earache
  • Tinnitus and ear noises
  • Migraines
  • Sinusitis
  • Snoring
  • Allergies and hay fever stress
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Inner ear imbalance
  • Travel sickness

The therapist, to ascertain the source of the problem, will complete a medical consultation form. The client then lies on a couch, and the candle is lit and inserted vertically in one ear. It is left to burn for around 10 minutes per side. The candle gently draws out any impurities (known as the “chimney effect”) and will help decongest the ear, nose and throat, and regulate the immune system. Treatment typically lasts for 30 minutes, while a one-hour treatment will incorporate face and head massage, to prolong the effect of the candles. Ear candling is suitable for all adults and children, except for those who have the following conditions:

  • Ear infection or inflammation
  • Recent ear surgery
  • Perforated eardrum
  • Cysts, grommets or tubes
  • Allergies to candle wax
