Ear Candling is an ancient ritual handed down through many civilisations.
It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis.
A light suction action described as a chimney effect and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the Ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum.
After a consultation about your health and medical history, you will lie on the therapy couch and be made comfortable, whilst lying on your side the candle will be gently inserted at the ear entrance it does not go in deep aproximately 1-1.5 cms, once the candle is lit I will be holding it securely the entire time.
While the candle is burning you will hear a very soothing, gentle crackling and hissing sound, feel a sensation of warmth around your ear and head and may experience a feeling of pressure being released in the ears and sinuses.
The candle takes between 8-10 mins to burn down then the area around the ear is massaged and the procedure repeated on the other side.
