Thermo Auricular Therapy

Thermo Auricular Therapy also known as Ear Candling or Hopi Ear Candles has arrived at The Log Cabin as John has expanded his skills to bring in this traditional treatment option.

Ear candling is a therapy that has been in use for thousands of years. It is a very safe therapy that can help with problems in the ears, throat and sinuses. If you think it might benefit you at all, or you are curious, read on for more information.

What is Ear Candling?

Ear candling is also known as thermal auricular therapy.  They are hollow candles that are placed in the ears and they work in the same way as a chimney, drawing impurities to the surface where they can then be safely removed.  Ear candling can help to equalise the pressure in the head and ears.  The flow of wax is gently stimulated and this helps to remove impurities and deposits that are present in the ears.  This is done by the candles creating a mild suction. The candles themselves are made from cotton or linen that has been impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils.

What Ear Candling Can Be Used For ?

Ear candling can be used to treat a variety of conditions. These include the following:

Excessive or compacted wax in the ears
Irritation in the ears or sinuses
Helping to regulate the pressure in the head and ears if you are suffering from a condition such as colds and flu, rhinitis, sinusitis and headaches
Stimulating energy flow
Relaxing and calming stress
Tinnitus, ringing in the ears, etc

Ear candling is generally a very safe procedure but they should not be used if you have grommets in the ear, if you have inflammation or infection present in the ears, if you have perforated ear drums, if you have had recent ear surgery, or if you have an allergic reaction at all.  It is possible to use ear candling in place of syringing the ears.

If you have any doubts about whether ear candling is suitable for you, you can check with the practitioner or alternatively with your GP.

Cost of this therapy is £25 and takes about 45 minutes.
