Position for candling
I haven't yet done a course in ear candling (I have a grommet at the moment, so thought I'd wait until that had gone, so I could experience a treatment too), but was wondering whether it's possible to do this therapy with the client sitting on a chair (and leaning forward onto a table) rather than lying on a couch?
Thanks for any advice
I think the best thing to suggest here is that, if you can lay with your head at flat angle for a while then I'm sure your clients can. Try it and see
Having the person lying comfortably on their side with their head supported is best, so a couch or a sofa etc. is ideal. Don't think they'd be comfortable sitting with their head twisted onto a table, but you could always see.
Thanks a lot for your thoughts on this - will have to experiment!
One of the really nice things about receiving this treatment is the 'cosy, snuggle' effect that a client has when lying down, covered with a blanket, your warm hand supporting the candle on their ear, their hearing cut off so that they can concentrate on relaxation and not speaking. For that reason alone it is a valuable therapapeutic treatment, let alone the fact that it has benefits for clearing ENT area. I am a practitioner of this so both give and receive. However I support others posting to try it and see!
Comfort with Ear Candling
You could have your client sitting with the head down as long as the candling inserted correctly and at the correct angle however, it would not be that comfortable. In my experience for a client to be comfortable adds to the whole experience so lying down in a comfortable position, possible covered in a blanket for warmth is more likely to make the experience enjoyable and make them want to come back. If you are looking for some good prices at the moment then hopicandles4u.com have some sales on. They are a good supplier of Herbacone Ear Candles which I can vouch for as I have used previously. 🙂
Ear Candling Position
PS You are right about the Grommet. Ear Candling should not be carried out when grommets are in place
