Review: The Excelsior Spa - Galleria-ear candling
*******FOR THOSE WHO ARE STILL NOT CONVINCED THAT THIS PROCEDURE IS HARMFUL, LET ME REMIND YOU THAT MY EARS WERE BURNED AS CERTIFIED BY THE DOCTOR.I'VE SEEN IT FROM THE EENT'S MONITOR MY EAR LOOKS LIKE A PART OF A BARBECUE..****
We tried the Egyptian Ear Candling Technique that is suppose to relieve people from swimmers ear, fatigue, headache and cold. They claimed it is also helpful in removing hardened ear wax and would help you hear better.
The Ear candling costs around 700.00 for a 30 minute back massage and 15 minute each ear for the ear candling.
After the massage, they will insert a cone candle into your ear, it is around 9-12 inches long, they would then insert a board down the candle near the ear to prevent the candle residue from pouring over your ear. Imagine in a procession, to prevent burning your hand you will put a cardboard right?
This is supposedly what is inside your ear, we did saw these things and "believed" that it is the earwax from our ear.
The massage is relaxing, the spa is cozy, it makes you sleepy, the facilities are clean and it has a sauna and bath.
Caution, the whole procedure literally burned our ear! We have to see a doctor the next day because of a very hurtful ear. I even have to take an antibiotic because I got an infected ear from the burn. I even have to buy two kinds of eardrops, one for the taking out the remnants of the candle to make it loose and one for the infection.
Imagine, I was taking CELEBREX which costs 70 each to take away the pain.
