Ear Candling (also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy) is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment for the ears. It is used to offer real benefits for many problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat areas. The treatment is used as an alternative to conventional treatments such as antibiotics, ear syringing and grommets. An ear candle treatment is a very calming and relaxing experience.
The process of Ear Candling involves a specially designed hollow candle which is then gently inserted just inside the ear canal. The candle is then lit and the suction that is formed draws out impurities or deposits. This is quite often referred to as a ‘chimney’ effect.
The rising air also gently massages the ear drum and helps to regulate pressure inside the ear.
Ear Candling has been known to benefit those suffering from the following:
Compacted Ear Wax
Post Diving Pressure
Post Flying Pressure
