Ear Candling aka Thermal Auricular Therapy (45 mins)
dates back centuries when it was used by the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks. Ear candles are hollow tubes moulded from natural linen fabric impregnated with beeswax and may also contain honey, sage, St Johns Wort and camomile. The candles act like a chimney, drawing impurities out and the column of warm air rising in the candle can massage the ear drum while pressure in the sinus cavities and ears is equalised. Ear candling can relieve ear or sinus problems including build-up of earwax as well as circulatory problems in the ear. Each candling treatment concludes with a neck and face massage. NB: Ear candling is not recommended if you have perforated eardrums or have had grommets inserted recently, if you have high blood pressure, are in the first trimester of pregnancy or if you’re experiencing an ongoing ear or sinus infection.
