Ear Candling

 



This ancient clearing method has been used by the Egyptians (who apparently used reeds), the Chinese, Greeks, and the Hopi Indians of America.

The process involves using a specially made hollow candle which is held gently on the edge of the ear to create a vacuum in the ear, drawing out old wax, residues of past infection and fungus. Candling is said to stimulate the immune system and peripheral blood circulation. Ear candles may also be used to cleanse and harmonise a person’s energy fields or auras, prior to meditation or trance work.

Candling is non invasive and completely painless. Treatments will generally last about one hour. Beneficial results may be obtained for the following problems:
  • Excessive wax build-up
  • Sinus irritation
  • Chronic ear infections (in conjunction with other medical treatment)
  • To clear the head before or after a flight
  • Fungal problems

Dealing with Blocked Ears

Blocked ears are a common complaint in adults and children, frequently the result of an obstruction or infection of the ear canal. The most common blockages are often self-inflicted, the result of cotton buds being used to attempt to clean the ear canal.
