How does ear candling work?

The patient simply lies on their side and relaxes as a lit Hopi candle is placed in their ear. When lit, the ear candles have a slight sucking action often referred to as the chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. The rising air inside the ear sets up a vibration which gently massages the eardrum. This can help to regulate the pressures involved inside the ear. The flow of air within the ear candle creates a circulation of concentrated vapour. This is soothing, calming and protects the irritated areas. Most impurities or deposits are carried away through the candle “chimney”, although some of them can be found in the lower section of the candle after removal from the ear, or some wax could even work its way up to the surface 24-48 hours after.

All of our Therapists are fully trained to provide you with the safest and most efficient service. There is a lot of controversy in regards to candles doing what they say they can. we have found here at the Beauty Parlour, this works for some people and some it may not have the same effect, it will depend on the individual.

what I can assure you is whether you do or don’t have any ailments to work on, this is still a relaxing treatment and will have you feeling chilled and stress free. We incorporate a head massage into our treatments to help you receive the best results from the candle therapy.

How Long Does the treatment take?

Treatment is 45 mins long, the candles take approximately 10-15 minutes to burn down each depending on the client and what ailments they may have, the longer the candle takes to burn down the worse the potential problem could be. The rest of the time is spent on massaging the head and scalp to ensure we help you as the client reach the maximum relaxation and to loosen any debris in the ears by massaging behind them.


What is earwax and why do we have it?

Inside the ear we can produce what we call ear wax, it is there to protect the ear and keep the ear canal lubricated and safe from infections and insects. Some people like to use cotton buds at home to clean the ear, these if used too far or too rough can cause damage and can also push the ear wax further into the canal therefore causing a blockage of ear wax, this can also cause loss of hearing, imbalance and worst of all infections. If the buds are pushed to far into the ear or if using any sharp probes these can potentially damage or puncture the ear drum which can also lead to infection. With candling this is a gentle and safe way of helping to loosen the ear wax and help it out of the ear canal so it is easily cleaned from there, without entering the ear.


What is involved in our ear candling treatments?

To start the treatment, we perform a slight head massage to release any pressure and relax the mind ready for the treatment. Your therapist asks you to lie on your side and places a plate or damp towel over your face and ear to protect you from falling ash and the heat. Your therapist gently inserts one end of the candle into your ear at 90 degrees and lights the other end. The crackling sound of the burning candle relaxes your body and mind as the vacuum created draws out the ear wax from your inner ear. After 10-15 minutes, your therapist asks you to turn over and the same steps are done for your other ear.

To finish a lymphatic drainage facial massage and scalp massage is performed, this is a great way to help release any further pressure but a lovely way to finish the treatment.


What are the contra indications?

People suffering from the following should not have a candle treatment until the problem is healed or resolved.

  • Current inflammation or infection around the ears
  • Perforated ear drum
  • Grommets
  • Allergies to the ingredients

 

A full consultation will be done prior to this treatment to ensure it is safe to continue, we will also ask about recent surgery, medications, and ear ailments, past and present.
