Ear Candling

Especially in the spring and fall, our allergies can create sinus pressure, headaches, and clogged ears. I personally do ear candling twice a year to help ease those symptoms. But it wasn’t until I started doing manual lymphatic drainage with cupping that I started getting long-lasting relief. So for my clients, I offer a combinations service of massage with the cupping and ear candling.

The Benefits of Ear Candling

We have seen the healing of vertigo, dizziness, allergies, headaches, and so many others. When used properly, the benefits of ear candling may include:

* Clears wax & debris from the ear canal

* Relieves pressure from behind the eardrum

* Sharpens mental functions, vision, hearing, taste & color perception

* Eases earache, headache & sinus pressure, allergies

* Relaxation from the negative charge of the herbal smoke 

* Acts as a catalyst to clear nerve endings & promote healing

How Ear Candling Works

Ear candling takes an hour, it’s non-invasive and has a relaxing effect. After the lymphatic cupping on the face and neck, the ear candle is lit on the wide end and heat is not felt in the ear canal.

The gentle vacuum effect of fire causes debris to be drawn up the candle toward the flame.

Important Ear Candling Notes

  • Chronic conditions may take up to three sessions to finish the cleansing process, but they need to be spaced 7-10 days apart.
  • If your ears feel dry after cleansing, use a few drops of warm ear oil. This very soothing.
  • Ear candling is not a cure-all. While effective in many cases, it is best to be seen first by your doctor if you are experiencing specific medical problems.
  • Ear candling is not recommended for 1) People who have a hole in their eardrum. 2) If you’ve had tubes in your eardrums (Can be checked to see if they have healed shut before candling). 3) If you have difficulty breathing where small amounts of smoke is a threat. (ex. emphysema, etc.)
  • Excessive use is not wise or recommended.
