Itching in the ears
Ear candling also known as thermo-auricular therapy) is a complementary therapy that aims to help symptoms associated with the ear, nose and throat.
It involves placing a hollow, cone-shaped tube (or ‘candle’) made of cotton, soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs into the ear canal. This stimulates the ear and is believed to facilitate the removal of excess wax and impurities. Ear candling can promote deep relaxation and helps to relieve stress and revitalise the body.
Ear candling sessiosn can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience for the client. At the start of the session, you will have a consultation, where your therapist will discuss your medical history and current symptoms..
You will then be placed in a comfortable position on your side before the therapist gently places a specialised candle in your ear. This will be lit and held in place while it burns for around 10 - 15 minutes.
You are likely to hear a crackling sound as the candle burns and feel a warm, gentle massaging sensation in the ear. When the candle has burned completely, it will be removed from your ear and extinguished. This process is then repeated on the other ear.
Once both ears have been treated, your therapist will massage the area around the ears and face to encourage lymphatic drainage and enhance the effects of the candling. Many report an immediate relief of pressure after the treatment.
A session will last for approximately 30 minutes
