Often called Hopi ear candling and also known as thermo-auricular therapy, treatment with ear candles is a complementary therapy, not designed to cure or resolve any specific ailment. Yet many people believe this procedure is excellent for relaxation and overall health. At SalonServe, we believe individuals should be able to decide what type of complementary therapy will support their well-being.

A Step-by-Step Guide on How to Use Ear Candles 

                1. Measure the candle’s tapered, or little, end against your ear. The candle ought to be customised to your ear’s dimensions and shape. This can guarantee the safest and most efficient candling procedure.
                2. To fill the ear canal, slightly enlarge the opening created by trimming the end of the candle with the scissors.
                3. Check that the opening is adequate. The path from one end of the candle to the other should be obvious. 
                4. Wash your hands thoroughly to reduce the possibility of microorganisms causing an infection. Use a mild, antimicrobial, and antibacterial soap — the World Health Organisation (WHO) hand washing guide is a helpful visual reference to encourage the correct hand washing technique.
                5. Your client can lie down or remain sitting and tilt their head to one side. Many therapists prefer to perform ear candling while the client is lying on one side as this tends to feel more relaxing and reduces the possibility of the candle slipping out of position.
                6. Gently wipe your client’s outer ear with a warm, damp cloth and then dry off the ear.
                7. Massage the region surrounding and behind the ear for around 30 seconds. This can help to relax your client and increase circulation in the inner ear. 
                8. The candle must have a secure fit. If no smoke escapes from between the inner ear and the candle, you know it’s correctly positioned. If you don’t have an appropriate alignment, modify your client’s position or the angle of the candle. Occasionally, if this doesn’t work, you might want to attempt it afresh with a different candle.
                9. Let the candle burn until it is approximately three to four inches away from the ear’s opening. This will typically take around 10 to 15 minutes. If it appears to be taking too long, remove the candle and check that the opening is clear.  Sometimes, you might need to quickly clean the opening with a tool such as a toothpick before re-inserting the candle.
                10. Remove the remaining candle stub and ask your client if they want you to open it to reveal debris inside.
                11. Gently wipe and dry the outer ear, and repeat the same steps for the other ear.
