Do you suffer from blocked ears, sinus issues or hayfever? Ear Candling can help to clear the ear canal and sinuses, leaving you feeling clearer and revitalized.
This extremely relaxing treatment involves a gentle technique of inserting a hollow candle into the ear canal to draw out excess wax and debris. And it has a surprisingly relaxing effect.
What can it treat?
Ear Candling can help to promote an improved state of health. The treatment may relieve conditions troubling the ear, such as:
- Excessive earwax
- Glue ear
It may also benefit other conditions that affect the head area such as:
- Hay fever
- Sinus problems
How will it feel?
Ear candles are handmade from beeswax and unbleached cotton cloth and rolled into a cone. This is then placed in the ear and lit. The ear candle creates a vacuum which gently draws out wax and debris from the ear. During the treatment you will hear a slight crackling or popping noise and possibly feel the movement of debris being drawn out of the ear. At the end of your session, your therapist will cut open the ear candles so you can see what’s been drawn out of your ears.
What benefits might I receive?
Generally ear candling can be extremely useful for inner ear conditions and you may find that you feel clearer in the head. Your hearing may be improved or sense of balance restored.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments recommended to you is dependant on what you are seeking treatments for. To maintain optimum ear health most people need just 2 or 3 candling sessions. Once your ears are clear, personal preference should determine how often you have your ears candled. Many users ear candle every two to three months as part of their wellness program.
