What is Ear Candling for?
Ear candling is used for many reasons. Some people might have had a negative experience with “Traditional” medicine and sought to investigate other means of relief for their symptoms. Others may have known about ear candling and used them all their lives, while others might have been talked into using ear candles as a dare or suggestion from a friend. Ear candling is a matter of personal choice and the reasons people use them are as varied as people themselves. What we do know is that the majority of people who use them have not only enjoyed the experience but have recommended it to a friend.
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, 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 due to the fact that some of the wax from the candle itself may make its way down the inside of the cylinder and when cut open afterward is likely to resemble a waxy yellow substance that resembles ear wax.
An ear candling session lasts up to one hour, during which one or two ear candles may be burned for each ear.
