This treatment is sometimes referred to as Thermal-auricular therapy & is usually attributed to the Hopi Indians of America. Evidence shows us that ear candling has been used by ancient civilisations the world over.

A deeply relaxing treatment, that begins & ends with a short ear/ facial massage to open & stimulate flow of lymph through the sinuses. This aid's relaxation & release's congestion, or blockages.

Biosun ear candles are used. These are laboratory tested & have acheived the CE mark (93/42-EEC) for medical devices in Europe.

They burn at the far end, so create convection through the candle. This draws the softer wax's & toxins from the ear, some of which are oxisdised, or turned into vapour and burned off.

They are totally safe, the gentle warmth felt is comforting.

The amount of sessions needed depends upon the severity of your case.
They are not only used for the conditions listed below, but for antidoting stress. Many people report going to another space that is safe & healing.

Ear candles are not used with the following: Current ear infection, ear grommets or tubes, perforated ear drums, cochlear implants, high temperature, recent head or neck injury or recent ear surgery, cysts or tumours of the ear, alkalosis of the stapes, paracentesis, mastoiditis, allergies to ingredients ie;beeswax if allergic to bee stings, 1st trimester of pregnancy, dizziness due to low or high blood pressure (unless with GP's consent). If you have diabetes I can do the treatment and just leave out the massage, as this can speed up metabolism thus dangerously altering blood sugar levels.

  •  My son has had chronic excessive wax since he was tiny, he used to suffer repeated painful ear infections, as the middle ear's eustachian tube became congested. This resulted in antibiotics, followed by a period of debilitation and reduced immune response, often with further complications of being suseptible to any bug's/virus's circulating at the time.
    For the last 3 years he has had  preventitve treatments of ear candles at key times when I'm sure he's at risk ie; autumn, before all the cold bugs start going around, and if he's a bit run down. He's not had an ear infection since. What a relief all round!
