Also known as ‘Thermal Auricular Therapy’ and ‘Hopi Ear Candling’, this is a very relaxing therapy, which may help to release excess wax from the ears and sinuses. Stimulating and strengthening the lymphatic and immune system, it can also help with the release of headaches, migraines, tinnitus and sinusitis.
Following a consultation you will be given a face, neck and shoulder massage to help muscles relax and improve circulation. A hot towel (which feels amazingly good!) is applied to the face and neck. Pressure points and massage techniques are used on the face, including over sinuses, to allow the ear candles to do their work as effectively as possible.
You can then lay on each side in turn. The candles are lit and placed in the ear just enough to form a vacuum at the bottom. The candle acts like a chimney causing the warm air inside it to rise. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, encouraging elimination of excess wax naturally. Each candle can take around 9-12 minutes to burn down to the safety mark, at which point they are gently removed.
This is followed by a facial massage, using an organic oil, to promote lymphatic drainage and elimination of waste products from the body.
At the end of each treatment candles are opened and a reading of the contents is shared.
This treatment is very soothing and aims to leave clients with a reduced feeling of pressure in the ears and head and an improved sense of wellbeing.
The ear candles used are made from 100% natural, raw, untreated ingredients, including therapeutic honey, sage and chamomile.
