Ear Candling Therapy
What is Ear Candling?
Ear Candling Therapy is a safe, simple and natural way to remove excess wax and debris from inside of the ears. This method of ear conning is fairly simple and very soothing.
Conditions That Benefit From Ear Candle Therapy
Compacted ear wax, or ear glue, can create problems with Tinnitus which can be relieved by the application of Ear Candling therapy. Rhinitis, sinusitis and catarrh may also benefit from the ease of pressure on the ear. By regulating ear pressure, using Ear Candles, pressure in the ears and head is reduced, and the lymphatic system and metabolism is stimulated. As the ear treatment is relaxing this also helps ease anxiety, stress, imbalance and aches and pains.

What to Expect During Treatment
The initial consultation enables the individual to assess whether this treatment is right for their needs. After answering health history related questions the individual lies on their side on a treatment couch and a candle is gently inserted into the ear. The tapered candle is then lit and left to burn slowly. The candle draws ear wax and fungus deposits from inside the ear canal which burns off, or is collected at the bottom of the candle. When one ear has been treated the same procedure is repeated on the other ear.
Does Ear Candle Therapy Hurt?
Ear Candling is a relaxing, painless and harmless natural treatment. As the wax burns and the fungus are drawn out of the ears a crackling and/or hissing sound may be noticeable. The wax and ear fungus is gently drawn up through the chimney of the candle but this does not cause any discomfort.
It is not recommended that individuals suffer from perforated ear drums, or who have an artificial ear drum, use ear candling as a treatment for any condition.
What to Expect Post Treatment
After an Ear Candle treatment the individual may experience lightness in the head. Noises may also seem louder because hearing has been improved by the removal of wax blockage. If the sensation is a little uncomfortable ear oil on cotton wool can be gently inserted into the ear as a temporary aid.
