Ear Candling Service

Ear Candling

An "Old Home Remedy" The spiral of the cone causes the smoke to be drawn downward into the ear canal. This causes the ear canal to warm, and loosens the wax and other debris lying there. The candle flame and the cone geometry then create a gentle vacuum that draws out this debris and often helps to relieve congestion. As the candle burns, you may hear some crackling and hissing. This is a normal sound of the candle at work. Ear candling is soothing and relaxing, and you may experience a clearing of the sinuses, Eustachian tubes and nasal passages.

Typical Benefits

Ear wax buildup is common, and the central influence of the auditory system on coherent body functioning is well known. Most people benefit from a clear auditory canal, especially those who:

  • Have a chronic wax buildup condition
  • Work outdoors or in dusty environments
  • Participate in water activities
  • Suffer ear-aches, sinus infections, or allergies
  • Wish to apply herbal therapies as a health benefit
Contra - Indications

Do not elect ear candling if you have:

  • A recent ear surgery
  • Cysts or tumors in the ear
  • Mastoiditis in an acute stage
  • Ear drains (tubes)
  • A recent injury or damage to the ear
