Relax and unwind with this safe and effective procedure to gently remove
excess ear wax and debris. A muslin candle dipped in beeswax is lit on
one end while the other is placed in the ear. Soft heat warms the ear
wax which is then pulled into the unburned portion of the candle. It
takes about 15 minutes per candle, per ear, and it's recommended you not
do more than two candles per ear in a single session.
What is Ear Candlng?
Ear Candling is the holistic way of treating ear aches and other common
issues related to the ear. It is best defined as the use of an ear
candle which is a beeswax or paraffin wax coated cloth that is shaped
into a conical cylinder about 10Ã¢?Â to 15Ã¢?Â in length with varying widths.
Ear Candling is a therapeutic relaxation technique similar to
acupressure, acupuncture, and aromatherapy. Although many have found
it to be safe and effective, as well as very relaxing, it should not
replace medical treatment.
What is Ear Candling for?
Ear candling is a
natural, non-intrusive procedure that may help alleviate the painful
effects of chronic headaches, sinus conditions, allergies, vertigo, as
well as minor hearing loss due to excessive earwax build up. It is said that ear candles can be used to alleviate
symptoms ranging from simple ear aches, sinus infections, and sinus
pressure, aiding sinusitis, releasing blocked energy, relieving pressure
points of tension, and overall just being a soothing relaxing therapy.
Ear candle practitioners do not claim that they cure these conditions,
only that it will help to bring balance and promote healing. There are
some myths regarding what happens during the candling experience. One of
these is that the smoke enters the ear canal and softens the wax which
is then drawn back up through the candle. This is the most common
description of how candling works due to the fact that some of the wax
from the candle itself may make its way down the inside of the cylinder
and when cut open afterward is likely to resemble a waxy yellow
substance that resembles ear wax.
