Thermo- auricular therapy (ear candling) is a pleasant stimulation of the ears and head that produces a gentle suction and vibration action. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is deeply relaxing and soothing and manufacturers of the candles claim it may help to relieve ongoing congestion in the sinuses, head and ears. It is carried out with a facial and head massage to promote relaxation and may help with the feeling of congestion in the head.
45 minute appointment €45.00
For severe congestion a course of 3 appointment sessions held at weekly intervals and then monthly after that are recommended by the manufacturers. If a client decides on this, subsequent appointments for ear candling are reduced to €35.00 if repeated within 3 months of initial visit for candling.
It is important that no oil is added to the ear for 24 hours before an ear candling or Hopi candling session. If this has occurred the appointment should be deferred until sufficient time has elapsed. If there has been a history of a perforated ear drum, ear grommets or tubes/implants or acute infectious diseases or acute sinusitis, ear candling is contraindicated- if unsure please check with your G.P.
