EAR CANDLING

Ear candles bring together fire, heat and scented smoke to promote healing and a sense of wellbeing. They have been used by many cultures and civilisations including Greeks, Egyptians and Romans, with roots reaching back to native tribes in North and South America, Asia and the Siberian Prairies.

Ear candling is non-invasive and gently effective for some conditions affecting the head and ear areas and can help to alleviate:

Headaches
Excessive or compacted ear wax
Mild colds or catarrh
Tinnitus
Ear aches
Sinus problems
Rhinitis, including seasonal hay fever
Sore throats
Pressure regulation, flying or diving problems
Stress

Ear candling is a complementary therapy. If in doubt about a medical condition, please consult your doctor.

Ear Candling FAQs

What are ear candles?

The ear candles used by Melanie Glanville at reCentre-health are hand-made, hollow tubes of premium quality, pesticide-free, untreated cotton linen, which have been coated with a traditional recipe of pure beeswax, and infused with essential oils, chamomile, geranium, lavender and eucalyptus. Made by Biosun or Naturhelix, the candles have been developed and manufactured to the highest standards and include a safety filter to ensure that debris doesn’t fall into the ear while the candle burns.

What happens during an ear candling treatment?

Once a consultation form is completed and the treatment has been discussed, you will lie on your side, covered by a blanket for comfort, and with a purpose-made cotton treatment cloth placed around the ear and nearby areas. The lighted ear candle is gently placed into the entrance of the outer ear and you may experience a gentle heat and a pleasant crackling sound. The rising air column inside the hollow candle creates a very mild suction action at the base, which helps to loosen compacted earwax. At the same time, the beeswax and other ingredients are vapourised, creating a massage-like effect around the eardrum. Each candle will take about 10 minutes to burn to a safety marker line, at which time it will be gently removed from the outer ear and safely extinguished in water.

To enhance the relaxing benefits of this treatment, it is followed by some treatment with Reiki, bringing the session to a close after 45 minutes to 1 hour.

What benefits may come from ear candling?

Ear candling is non-invasive and gently effective for some conditions affecting the head and ear areas and can help to alleviate:

Headaches
Excessive or compacted ear wax
Mild colds or catarrh
Tinnitus
Ear aches
Sinus problems
Rhinitis, including seasonal hay fever
Sore throats
Pressure regulation, flying or diving problems
Stress
Children (over the age of 3) can also benefit from this safe treatment. However, parents are encouraged to speak to Melanie directly in advance, as well as consulting their GP if there is any underlying medical condition. Children should not be treated unless they have the ability to lie still during the treatment, and understand that they cannot touch the candles. A parent or guardian must always accompany children.

How frequently should treatments be taken?

This will depend on factors including the purpose of treatment, how you respond and the nature of your condition and general health. Ear candles can be used as a one-off treatment or for a course of treatments. A recommended course consists of 3 sessions, 2-3 days apart and, if the problem persists 3 more sessions one week apart. This can be followed by monthly sessions.

Does ear candling suit everyone?

Please be aware that some conditions are contra-indicated and ear candling should not be considered in the following cases:

Perforated or artificial ear drum
