Your skin is a really great indicator of what's going on inside your body

Ear Candling ~ £22.00 Spring offer
BIOSUN® Ear candles have their origins in the century-old culture of the Hopi Indians and other cultures.
The ‘candles’ are hollow tubes made in the traditional Hopi Indian way. Organically grown woven cotton is impregnated with honey extracts, essential oil of sage, 100% pure beeswax and crushed traditional Indian medicinal herbs (mainly sage and camomile).
How they work
During the treatment, a lit candle is placed gently in the entrance to the ear, whilst you are lying down. The candle burns with a small flame, the heat from which produces a mild suction by which debris can be drawn out of the ear. The vapours are produced as the candle burns down and circulate in the ear canal having anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-bacterial benefits. Pressure within the ear may also be regulated.
The mild heat stimulates the blood and lymph circulation which boosts the immune system and the vibration of the rising air through the natural movement of the flame gently massages the eardrum. Both ears are always treated to ensure balance is maintained.
Directly after the treatment, the physical effect is often described subjectively as a feel-good, pressure and pain-soothing sensation, mainly in the area around the ear and in the head. It can also lead to a clearing of the nasal passages and to an improved sense of smell, especially where people had a blocked nose before the treatment.
The treatment is extremely relaxing and can help many ear, nose and throat problems.
In addition, the whole experience leads to a wonderful sense of relaxation and a deep feeling of security and happiness, which is rare to find!
