What Is It?
Ear candling, also known as ear coning, is a simple, effective method for removing ear wax build-up, fungus, yeast, and pollen from within the ear canal. The process can also regulate ear and sinus pressure, assist with post-nasal drip, sinusitis, itchy ears, migraines, and restoration of equilibrium.
A hollow candle that tapers at one end fits into the ear. The other end, when lighted, draws oxygen from the flame and creates a vacuum. This has the effect of pulling out residue, cleansing, and detoxing the ears. Ear candling was a technique used by the ancient Egyptians, Mayans, Indians, and Tibetans. It is a safe and pleasant alternative to traditional treatments of removing extra wax in the ears. Ear candling is soothing and relaxing.
How It Works
Ear candling is a non-invasive procedure that generally takes about 45 minutes. You’ll be instructed to lay on your side, and your practitioner will gently insert the tapered end of the candle into your ear canal. The practitioner will carefully light the candle and allow it to burn. The only responsibility you have is laying back and enjoying the calming, crackling sound of the candle for the next 15-20 minutes.
After the candle has melted down to about 4-inches in height, your practitioner will extinguish it and then you’ll flip sides and begin the process again.
