There are many benefits of ear candling. It is safe, simple and natural. It is a soothing experience that reduces stress and tension and also sharpens mental functions.
You will lie comfortably on your side on a padded massage-type table resting your head on a pillow as the candling is performed.Hollow cones 9” to 10” in length and ¼” to ½” in diameter made from spiraled strips of cotton dipped in either bee’s wax or paraffin are used. The tapered end of the cone is gently placed in the ear. The other end is lit and the heat from the low-burning flame creates a vacuum-pulling effect. For your safety, a plate separates the burning end from your head to prevent any drippage of candle residue. During the treatment, a stimulating, as well as calming, head massage accelerates the removal of harmful debris and adds warmth to the experience. Periodically, the burned end will be cut back. When the candle burns down to about 2”, the process is them repeated for the opposite ear. Candling will take approximately 15-20 minutes per ear depending on the type of candle being used. During the treatment, you will normally hear some crackling, hissing and the "suction" sounds much like the gentle hum one hears when a seashell is placed against the ear.
