Ear Candling Relax - Let Go - Revitalise! Ear candles create a gentle suction action. The movement of the flame causes a vibration of air in the Ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum. These actions assist in the removal of ‘built up’ ear wax. Ear Candling creates a pleasant feeling of warmth and balances pressure in the ears, forehead & sinuses. It is very soothing and can help with headaches, ear noise, stress and nervousness. It may even help free nasal breathing and improve the sense of smell. The session brings about a sense of relaxation and helps in balancing energy, even long after the session is completed.

The candle is saturated in 100 per cent Bees Wax and contains a blend of Herbs which release a gentle vapour when the candle is lit to soothe and calm the ear and arrest any infection that maybe harbouring inside the ear. Hopi candles used in a session have an internal filter to catch debris.The candle is lit at one end and the other end is gently placed at the very opening of the ear. The flame at the top of the candle creates a vacuum, which gently encourages the excess wax in the ear to come away and work its way up the candle so there is no mess and no risk to the client. While the candle is burning a pleasant crackling sound may be heard and a gentle warmth felt. Locally administered heat stimulates the peripheral blood circulation, thus intensifying the immune defence system and strengthens the cleansing circulation of the lymph glands. It also stimulates energy points and reflex zones. From an esoteric point of view the cleansing fire carries negative vibrations away from the fine metabolic energy fields and harmonises the energy status. The ear candle technique is ideal for removing excessive ear wax, infection or the residue of past infections therefore promoting a healthy atmosphere in the ear, inner ear, sinus cavities and passages. This is possible because all the passages in the head are interconnected, allowing the candles to drain the whole system by osmosis through the membrane of the ear. It drains from the ear, the sinuses and lymph glands. Children are especially susceptible to ear infections because the inside of the Auditory Canal slants horizontal unlike adults which slant vertical and don't attract bacteria as often. Ear candling is extremely relaxing and toddlers often look forward to a treatment as it gives them instant relief from the symptoms of congestion, earache and discomfort that accompanies teething, colds and flu. Adults are amazed at the build up of excess wax over the years and the tremendous relief and comfort ear candling can give with only one treatment, often noting an improvement in hearing if the build up of wax has compromised this. After a treatment recipients often describe a soothing, light sensation in the ear/head area, as well as an overall sense of relaxation.
