Ear Candling

Used for centuries by the native people of North America, people of India and Asia, ear candles have hollow centres and are made from natural substances such as honey, beeswax and medicinal herbs. When lit and inserted into your ear the candle’s gentle heat improves blood circulation and increases the cleansing action of the lymphatic system. Vapor from the candle also performs a massaging function in the auditory canal, softening impurities and stimulating energy points and reflex zones. The ear candles can act like a chimney, drawing away any impurities from inside the ear, which in turn regulates the pressure system within the ear and the head. This very soothing treatment can also benefit you by:

What Can I Expect During and After the Session? 

If you have excessive hearing loss, you might be more aware of the candle heat than an average hearing person as your feeling senses are more developed than a regular hearing person. Since we leave 4 to 6 inches of candle left unburned, you have nothing to fear from the heat or flame.

Most people are aware of some crackling and popping as the candle is burned and the ear wax is being pulled out. Relax and enjoy the soothing influence of the experience. After the session you may feel lightness in your head and noises may appear to be louder. While you adjust to your new level of hearing, you might want to put some organic cotton in your ears with a little ear oil or olive oil to soothe the ear canal. If you feel itching in the ears, you might want to use the oil or some hydrogen peroxide for a day or two after the session. The itching will stop.

You might find your sinuses are draining and sinus headaches may decrease. This decrease occurs as the sinus cavities are soothed and plates of the skull return to a natural position. Sinus headaches are often caused by a misalignment of the cranial bones. These cranial plates can become misaligned for a variety reasons including: birth trauma; colds; toxins in the environment; and allergic reactions to the foods we eat, the clothing we wear, and the paraphernalia we use (e.g telephones). This is aided by the heat stimulating the acupressure points in your ears.

Many people experience an improvement in hearing and a wider perception of tones. However, if you have a hearing loss due to bone loss or nerve damage, you may notice no improvement in your hearing though you may notice an improvement in some other area. 

Regardless of any controversy, people who use ear candles regularly and consistently experience not only relief from ear infections, sinus infections, pink eye, vertigo, hearing loss, itchy ears, headaches, and fluid build-up that causes pressure and pain but also a general improved sense of well being (G. Webb, personal communication, May 26, 2006).
Treatment time lasts approximately 30 - 45 minutes.

How often should the ears be cleaned? The length of time between each ear candling session depends upon the condition of the ears. For general cleaning purposes, simply to keep the ears in good healthy shape, once every couple of months will do just fine. If the problem is more severe, such as difficulty hearing, three sessions can be done three to seven days apart from one another. This allows the ear time to replenish its normal wax and , in addition, stimulate its own healing naturally.

Ear Candling is not a medical device. Results vary from person to person. No results are guaranteed. This procedure is considered a holistic treatment. Note: Not liable for any claims, obligations, injury, expense, or damage arising from its use. Clients have their ears candled at their own risk.
CAUTION: Ear candling is not a substitute for medical attention. Ear candling will not be performed if you have a perforated ear drum or ear tubes, or have had any type of ear surgery.
