Frequently Asked Questions

What is Ear Candling?

Ear Candling, also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy, uses candles made of linen, honey and herbs are used to create a low-suction force that stimulates the ears and facilitates the removal of excess wax and impurities. This ancient treatment also cleanses and purifies your body’s energy, which leaves you feeling relaxed and clear headed.

What happens during an Ear Candling treatment?

Before beginning the treatment, a full consultation will be taken to ensure a truly bespoke experience. During the Ear Candling treatment, you will lay down on your side with your head supported on a pillow and your body covered with a soft blanket, as soothing music of distant shores plays in the background. Your Fourward Health professional will place a hollow, Ear Candle into your ear, which may contain some of the following:

  • Chamomile – Anti-inflammatory
  • Sage – Stimulates the lymph and increases circulation
  • St. John’s Wort – Restorative for the nervous system.
As the candle is lit, it creates a gentle suction that softens and draws the wax and impurities up from the ear. You may hear a fire crackling sound and some gentle popping as rising air gently massages the eardrum to help regulate ear pressure. Finally, the treatment concludes with a light Facial Massage to help drain away any sinus congestion.

Does Ear Candling hurt?

As Ear Candling uses a gentle suction from the lighting of the Ear Candle, you should not experience any discomfort or pain. At any time, you can ask your Fourward Health professional to stop the treatment.

What should I wear?

During this Ear Candling treatment, you will remain clothed throughout. However, your Fourward Health professional may ask you to remove your earrings or glasses.
