Without spas, terrycloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one spa ear-candling treatment at Body Bliss Wellness Center in Mokena (a $50 value).
During the ear-candling treatment, an auditory attendant attempts to draw out impacted wax, debris, and bacteria by placing a hollow candle into the patient's ear. After swaddling patients with a protective plate and flame-resistant cloth to shelter the face and hair, the technician lights the candle, which is made from unbleached cotton fabric coated with purified paraffin or beeswax, creating a vacuum that draws out inner-ear excess and nesting sparrows. Patients may lie down, relax, or curl-up on top of a piano as the candle gently goes to work. While candling has been performed on cochleae of all ages, those with perforated eardrums or similar conditions should not receive this treatment.
