How Does Ear Candling Treatment Work?
Ear candling treatment works by using the hollow ear candles to create a subtle suction effect. This gently softens and draws out wax and other particles from the ear, drawing it into the hollow candles.
During ear candling treatment, a brown waxy material is left in the candle. This is made up of ear wax, debris and Bacteria.
