Ear Candle Therapy (also known as Thermo-Auricular Therapy) is a simple, natural and effective treatment widely used to relieve a range of conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat. It is also aids deep relaxation helping to reduce stress and anxiety.

 

How It Works
The candles work by vapourising their ingredients once lit, causing warm convectional air flow towards the first chamber of the ear. The candle creates a mild suction which lets the vapours gently massage the eardrum and auditory canal, regulating ear pressure. Once the candle is placed in the ear it forms a seal which enables wax to soften, and other impurities to be drawn out.  

 

Ear candling is a gentle but effective way of strengthening your immune system.  After the candling treatment is complete you will also receive a facial lymphatic drainage massage.

Please Note:  Ear candling is totally safe and is a complementary treatment (it does not replace medical treatment). If you are in any doubt at all, or suffer from an ear condition, please consult with your GP prior to treatment.

MYTH - The candle does not 'suck out' ear wax. The residue remaining in the candle is indicative of how the treatment has progressed - a lot of powder or wax shows that the candle has not reached it's optimum temperature to  burn efficiently, indicating excess wax build up or other obstruction in the ear.  The ear wax present is gently heated and softened, allowing it to expel naturally over 24 - 48 hours.

SAFETY - We only use candles which have been tested, accredited and certified according to the European Medical Device Directive (93/42 Class 1).  The candles contain a specially developed safety filter which prevents combustion residues, and in some cases, unburned wax, from entering the ear canal.  It is suitable for adults and children of all ages.
