Ear Candling Aftercare Advice

Aftercare Advice

After Your Treatment

After receiving an Ear Candling treatment it is perfectly normal to experience the following, known as contra-actions:

  • Cold like symptoms
  • Sticky feeling within the ears or the losing of ear wax
  • Headache or Slight dizziness
  • Slight dryness in the throat

These reactions will last no longer than 24-48 hours, but if you have any concerns please feel free to contact us.
You may also experience:

  • Improvement in clarity of sound
  • Lighter feeling in the head and face due to sinus pressure relief



  • Ear wax/residue may naturally work its way out of the ear over the following 24-48 hours, this is normal (We recommend that you protect your pillows with a towel to prevent staining of your bedding).
  • Do not submerge your head under water for 24 hours after your treatment and try to avoid cold air blowing into your ears.
  • Do not insert anything, including cotton buds inside your ears.
  • Drinking plenty of water, squash, or herbal teas to help eliminate toxins and flush out the lymphatic system.
  • If you experience a runny nose please blow it gently rather than sniffing.
  • If you had a bit of a cold at the time of your treatment please note your symptoms may get worse.
  • You should leave a minimum of 48 hours between treatments.

Follow up treatment depends on the nature of the ear complaint, please speak with your therapist for additional advice.
