The Way It Works
Ear candling is a holistic procedure used to remove excess wax, draw out toxins and pollutants, cleanse the sinus cavities, improve hearing and other senses and revitalize the nerve endings.
It is use to remove excess wax, draw out toxins and pollutants, cleanse the sinus cavities, improve hearing and other senses and revitalize the nerve endings.
The spiral of the cone causes the smoke to be pulled down in to the ear canal.
This causes the ear canal to warm up and loosen the wax and any other material.
As it heats it up, the candle causes suction by creating a vacuum in the ear canal.
Air is drawn up from the tube into the middle ear then through the porous membrane out into the outer ear.
The heat and the vacuum draw out the wax and other materials from the ear canal into the base of the candle. As it burns down you will hear a lot of cracking and hissing which is the process of removing the wax etc.
The warmth feels soothing and relaxing during the process.
Some of the benefits those undergoing ear candling have experienced include:
- Removal of excess wax and allows better hearing
