How are they used?
The candles are lit on one end causing the heat to act as a vacuum to gently stimulate and remove excess ear wax and impurities.
The client should lie in a compfortable position on his/her side with the head supported on a pillow. A Small cotton towel or flannel is then used to cover the hair. The lit candle is inserted carefully into the outer ear and the flame is allowed to burn down to within a short distance of a marked red line, when the candle is removed gently and extinguished in some water. The practicioner then massages gently around the ear, using draining movements down the neck.
The proceedure is repeated with the other ear, and then the patient lies on their back for a gentle pressure point massage over sinus, face and ear zones to help with the natural drainage.
It is important that the client has a glass of water and lies still for approximately 15 minutes before they stand up.
Treatment duration varies on the degree of the problems experienced, however is generally between 30 - 45 mins
As many as 2 - 3 treatments per week can be performed.
