Ear Candling

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

1. Ear Candling is a holistic treatment used to help draw out excess ear wax and other blockages and pollutants from the ear canal and to help open the sinus cavities

Traditional Ear Candling sometimes referred to as Hopi Ear Candling is a soothing and relaxing thermal therapy which safely and painlessly uses the heat of flame to clear the ear canal and open the sinuses. The treatment uses a Bio-Sun hollow wax candle which has a safety filter near the lower end on the inside to prevent ash from falling into the ear.

3. What happens during a treatment?

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

You will be laid on your side with your head supported by a pillow and body covered with a blanket. The candles are made from a sheet of wax rolled into a tube with a plastic filter inside near the base to prevent any debris from falling into the ear and also a small plastic lip at the base to make a comfortable seal. The candle is positioned into the ear and held by the therapist whilst it burns down, the heat softens and draws out wax from the ear canal creating a clearing affect. Once both ears have been treated you are repositioned onto your back and Manual Lymphatic Drainage treatment is given to the neck, face, head and ears to help with further clearing. The remaining part of each candle is opened after the treatment to see how much wax has been drawn out.

4. How long are the treatments?

Normally 45 minutes, there is a short consultation at the start of the first appointment.

5. Therapy Room

I work from home and have created a bright, uplifting therapy studio. The massage couch I use is a fully electric - height / back rest / knee lift - adjustable thickly padded, extra wide, heated spa couch. Changing facilities are provided in the therapy room which is closed off by screened doors whilst you prepare for your treatment.
