Ear Candling

What is it?

Ear Candles work in three phases: Firstly, vapours of smoke travel into the ear canal warming the pores and softening the ear wax; secondly, with the tapered end of the candle firmly in the ear and the other end alight, a chimney effect occurs, whereby a gentle suction/vacuum draws debris into the candle. Thirdly, the warmth also stimulates the blood and lymph circulation, boosting the immune system which in turn boosts the body’s natural cleansing action. To complete the treatment a short lymphatic drainage massage on the face is performed.

What is the purpose of Ear Candling?

Ear candles can bring relief from discomfort associated with ear wax build up, sinus congestion, pressure in the ears, earache, rhinitis, and irritation of the ears which includes tinnitus, the removal of ear debris from nerve endings, the detoxification of the sinus and lymph system, sharpening of functions such as vision, hearing, smell and taste.

What are the benefits of Ear Candling?

The physical effect is often described directly after the treatment as a soothing, pressure and pain relieving sensation, mainly in the ear and head area. Treatment may also spontaneously cause freer nasal breathing and an improved sense of smell, even when the nose was blocked before.

When the candles have finished burning, Angie concludes this treatment with a relaxing lymphatic facial drainage massage with individually blended and warmed aromatherapy oils.
