Ear Candling

Ear Candling

Please contact therapist directly or phone reception on 01-8310888



Ear candles have a purely physical function. A light suction action and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the ear candle, generating a massage like effect on the eardrum.  It is soothing and helpful for ear ache, headache, ear noise, glue ear, sinusitis and migraines to name but a few.

We add in a face and neck massage to aid in the stimulation of the upper lymphatic’s to encourage drainage and to enhance your relaxation.

What a typical Treatment Session entails

You are asked to lie comfortably and listen to relaxing music. The candle is then gently placed into the auditory canal, where it is lit. I hold it in a vertical position, my hands keeping the candle steady and preventing any ash falling on to you. You will experience a pleasant crackling sound as the candle burns and a warm comfortable feeling. As the candle burns down, the residue ash (if it falls) will just turn to dust. The candle is then taken away while you lie there for a few moments before turning over to treat the other ear. Most clients find the whole experience very relaxing. Some fall asleep during treatment.
