Thermal Auricular Therapy 'Ear Candling'


Jump to:


What is Thermal Auricular Therapy?
A hollow tube (similar to a straw) made of natural ingredients including linen, flax seeds, honey, sage and hypericum is inserted into the ear, once a comfortable fit has been established, the candle is burnt down to a safe level then removed, it is always performed on both ears. The candles work on the principle of a chimney, drawing out any impurities. They also help to equalise the pressure in the head and ears. The therapist will stay with you throughout the treatment, supporting the candle at all times.

History of Thermal Auricular Therapy
Thermal Auricular Therapy or otherwise knows as 'Ear Candling' originates from Asia, the Mayas and North and South Indians of America, as with many other complementary therapies it has been handed down many civilisations. The Greeks used ear candles we believe for cleansing and purifying and healing on a spiritual basis.

It is also an idea to have it done before going on an aeroplane if you suffer with ear problems during flying. Very often you will feel some relief following the first session, however you many need up to 3 on a weekly basis.

It is safe to use from the age of 9 months.

A pressure point massage follows the ear candling (if required), this will help to continue with the relaxation and ease any tension within the body. It will also help to improve the flow of blood and lymph, assist in the removal of toxins and help to drain the sinuses.

The treatment lasts approx 45 minutes.

Always be sure to use a qualified therapist.
