What is Ear Candling?
Ear Candling is the holistic way of treating ear aches and other common issues related to the ear and throat. 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 10” to 15” 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.
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, balance 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
