Ear Candling Benefits
Ear candling, aka ear coning, is used to remove cerumen, aka ear wax, and toxins from an individual’s eat by means of a hollow paraffin/ beeswax hollow candle placed in the ear. By lighting the candle, the candle creates a vacuum effect upon the ear and removes impurities from the ear. If the ear candle is used improperly, there can be damage done, thus only allow properly trained individuals to perform ear candling.
Ear candling is used primarily for wax removal from the ears and promote healthy ears, sinus cavities, and throat. However, there are several other benefits associated with ear candling. The process can restore equilibrium, improve some forms of hearing loss, reduce migraines, catarrh, sinusitis, assist with post nasal drip, and regulate ear/head pressures.
Wax build up can cause hearing loss. Candida can cause mold/yeast allergies which causes itching inside the ear. Parasites can also grow in/crawl into the ear creating irritation. Ear candling can reduce these problems and help restore the ear’s natural environment.
How Ear Candling Works
The spiral of the ear cone causes the smoke to be pulled down into the ear canal. This causes the ear canal to warm and loosen earwax and other materials lodged in the ear. As the ear canal warms a vacuum effect is created and the debris is pulled up into the candle base. As the candle burns down a you will hear crackling and hissing which is the the process of the debris being removed. The over all process is very relaxing.
At the end of the session, you can be shown the accumulation of wax and fungus drawn out of the ear. The circulating in the ear is sometimes also known to have physically beneficial or even mild-clearing effects. The benefits claimed for ear candling are from individual use.
