The ear is probably one of the few spots that is the most sensitive and intimate for most people. So when Kless recommended to try out an ear candling service provided by one of our mutual friends, I was initially quite apprehensive. Especially the friend is a lady, touching my ear. But nonetheless, the curiosity to try out won over and we went on ahead with the plan.
Thankfully, the beauty salon was a small outlet and we were the only people there. In fact, the salon can only serve 4 person max at one time. It was very cosy and the place has a very soothing feel. As you can see, I am quite long for the normal bed. Head and legs are out of the normal bed frame. But still quite comfortable.
The ear candles are set ready for me. According to the beauty therapist, all the stuff used were organic. I guess it has to be organic if not, customers will not be willing to try it right?
Before the actual ear candling starts, the therapist did some simple massage around the ear area, neck and shoulders with lavender scent oil. So relaxing!
The moment of truth. Will it be painful? Will the candle burn my ears?
As you can see from the photo, the ear candle was inserted about 45-degree into my ear and it was not painful at all.
While the candle burns, the therapist continued to massage the areas near the ear and neck. This is suppose to enhance the procedure where the combination of heat and suction is suppose to remove earwax and dirt.
Each ear candle will burn out in about 10-15 mins. After that, this was the result from the suction. Not too dirty right?
Overall, the experience was very comfortable, I totally enjoyed the mild massage around the ears, neck and shoulders. Did I really hear much clearer after the session? Not really. But the feeling was comfortable and clean. Give it a try and enhance your personal wellness experience, at least once in your lifetime.
