What is Ear Candling?

Ear candles are not a traditional candle but are a hollow tube made using organic cotton or flax, pure beeswax, honey extract and traditional herbs.  Ear candling has become a popular therapy in the west and is used to help a wide range of symptoms, not only those associated with the ears.  The treatment also engenders a relaxed state in which the body is better able to fight imbalances.

This Ear Candling treatment includes a pressure point massage.
