Reasons for Ear Candling

Ear candling is a simple, effective method for removing ear wax build-up, fungus and impaction from within the ear canal.


During an Ear Candling (auricular candling ) session you lie on your side with your body in a straight alignment. A special conical candle is inserted into a protective plat….the candle is lit and slowly begins to burn. The small tapered end of the candle is gently placed into your ear canal. The ear candle—by it shape, designed length –draws ear wax and fungus deposits from deep inside your ear canal.

As the ear candling session progresses, extracted ear wax and fungus will be burned off, but a majority will be collected in the bottom part of the candle. After the candle has burned down and been extinguished, the therapist will cut open the remnant and show you the former contents of your ear canal. Most people cannot believe what has been collected there. Expect to be amazed.

For A short time after your ear candling session….you may feel lightness in you head and noises may seem to be much louder to you. This can be relieved by inserting cotton in each of your ears. You will most likely notice improved hearing, because the wax blockage is no longer present in your ears….

The following are a few conditions that may benefit you from ear candling:


. Headaches . Ringing in the ears . Migraines

. Ear infections . Plugged Ears . Chronic Sinusitis

. TMJ Dysfunction . Hearing Challenges . Imbalance

.Excessive wax . Inner Ear Pressure . Ear Aches and Pain


You can have future ear candling sessions whenever you feel the time is right….We recommend our clients to have ear candling every one to two months.


Ear candling is a natural way to clean out accumulated wax and white, flaky fungus from the ears. The accumulations withdrawn from your ears may be many months or even several years old. Ear candles are custom designed from natural fibers and tapered to precise specifications.


Ear candling does not hurt…It is painless, harmless and totally a relaxing experience. If it weren’t fro the intermittent crackling and hissing sounds—-due to the burning of the wax and fungus being drawn up the chimney of the candle—you would never know that anything was happening in your ear


Each session will last about 30 minutes.


Initially, most people need just 2 or 3 candling sessions to get their ears clean. However, some people may need u to eight (8) sessions over a six months period. Once your ears are clean, personal preference should determine how often you have your ears candled. Every one to two months would be practical.


Ear candling can benefit almost everyone, from infants to adults. Musicians can benefit-especially singers and horn blowers—who often have lot more wax build up than other people. People who wear hearing aid a benefit. Also those people, who have had previous ear injuries, can benefit from ear candling as they tend to have a greater build up of wax and fungus.


Ear candling should not be done to people who have ear tubes, perforated ear drums, or artificial ear drums.
