Today, more and more people are seeking alternatives to digging in the ears with Q-tips or using a hydrogen peroxide flush to clear blockages in the ear canal.
The ear candling treatment (also known as coning, candling, or ear coning), is a relaxing and therapeutic method people all over the world use to promote ear health. This age-old method of thermotherapy is a 'home remedy' that works to relieve pain and discomfort.
Ear Candling is a natural, non-intrusive procedure that may help alleviate the painful effects of chronic headaches or sinus conditions, ear infections, allergies or vertigo, as well as minor hearing loss due to excessive earwax build up.
It’s good to do the procedure quarterly or twice a year. If you feel like you may be coming down with a cold or virus, you should candle at that time and the healing process will start right away! This aids the immune system in healing.
The way it works:
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 geometry cone 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 procedure. All age groups are welcome.
