Thermal Auricular Therapy (Ear Candling)

Ear candling is an ancient and natural therapy found in the history of many civilisations, used as far afield as Asia, the Siberian prairies and most notably native America. It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles, initially for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, but much later on a purely physical basis.

The practice of using ear candles (known as Thermal Auricular Therapy) reached the modern world via the native North American Hopi Indians. Ear candles were traditionally used by Shamen healers. Ancient wall paintings (such as those found within the caves of the Grand Canyon) show their importance in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies of the tribe.

How do the candles work?

  • Ear candles are not medical devices; they are an energy modality more similar to acupuncture
    or reflexology than an ear syringe. The treatment increases blood flow and stimulates lymphatic
    drainage, restoring balance and enables your body to correct many problems.

  • A combination of light vortex action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a
    vibration of air in the Ear candle, generates a massage-like effect on the eardrum. The heat
    from the flame creates a stimulating and warming effect, these conditions are ideal for the body
    to rid itself of excess mucus in the middle ear, inner ear, sinuses and nose resulting in a balance
    of pressure and reduction of symptoms.

  • Ear candles act as a catalyst that affects the body’s systems and enables us to relax and allows
    the Eustachian tube , sinuses and lymphatic system to open and drain.

  • The treatment also brings a wonderful relaxation, a deep sense of security and feelings of calm
    and happiness which some recipients say is unrivalled to other treatments. How are they made?
    Ear candles are handmade structures; they are hollow tubes, impregnated with pesticide-free
    woven cotton and pure beeswax which have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which
    fight infections.
