Navel Candling Treatment
What is Navel Candling?
This ancient treatment has been used by many cultures and has helped to cleanse, purify and heal. The treatment gets its name from the hollow herbal candle which is lit and placed over the belly button at the end of the treatment. Before that, you can expect to experience a relaxing sacral herbal massage to ease and release any areas that are experiencing discomfort or pain, especially in the lower back, followed by a detoxifying clay mask and crystal healing.
As with ear candling, the burning candle creates a vacuum and the gentle heat created assists with the dispelling of toxins through the lymphatic system. Although, just like ear candling, nothing is pulled from the body (the residue we see in the candle is the melted wax and oils).
Science reveals that a fully functioning Navel (Hara) energy centre plays a great role in success & happiness. The stomach has a mind of its own, the “enteric nervous system". Just like the larger brain in the head, researchers say, this system sends and receives impulses, records experiences and responds to emotions. It's nerve cells are bathed and influenced by the same neurotransmitters. The stomach can upset the brain just as the brain can upset the stomach.
The Navel (hara) is believed to be where our decisions are made, and where our core feelings, our loyalties, and our deep inner emotions are stored. In other words, it is the place of one’s true self. According to Ancient Eastern Philosophy, the Navel or Hara is the seat of Life, the center of inherent energy. It is also referred to as a state of mind in the development of one’s character. One who activates the Navel is not likely to lose his balance, equanimity or serenity. This treatment takes approximately 90 minutes and includes Thai herbal massage, aromatherapy, crystal healing, a clay detox mask and the navel candling. If you suffer from digestive, menstrual, or fluid retention, are on a weight loss journey or stomach stress condition, this is a wonderful warming, gentle nurturing and relaxing, non-invasive treatment and I highly recommend it
Commonly reported benefits:
Aiding the removal of toxins through the body’s lymphatic system
Improved digestive, womb and colon health
Feeling more in control of our path and future
More connected to our bodies, and the messages it gives through intuition
During treatment clients often feel:
Well rested, similar to a full night of sleep
A sense of warmth, occasionally a cool sensation
The sensation of energy moving around, such as a swirling sensation or colours
Or "see", during the session, mental pictures or symbols as we work through the energy layers of the sacral and heart chakras.
As a client what do I need to do?
Other than removing your shoes - nothing! The whole treatment is performed on the abdomen and only the abdomen is exposed
Hopefully, just relax, there's no test at the end!
You do not need to concentrate
If you do not notice any sensations it's fine, it's still working!
What should I do afterwards?
Make sure you feel fully alert before driving, operating machinery
Drink plenty of water, as you would after any massage
Try not to rush straight off into our super busy fast-paced life! It's nice to enjoy the relaxation :)
If you requested a report after your healing it will be with you within 48 hours
Additionally, during any healing session, I sometimes receive spiritual suggestions for the client regarding areas of their life that could benefit from some attention. This information I pass on to the client at the end of the session and I can include it in a report afterwards if you would prefer
