Dorothy's ear candling treatment is a relaxing and therapeutic method. Many people use it to promote ear health. This age-old practice works to relieve pain and discomfort. The warmth & smoke assists the body’s natural process to excrete impacted earwax during the day after candling is performed. A hollow beeswax candle that tapers at one end fits into the ear. The opposite end is set to flame creating a vacuum that gently dislodges foreign debris, softens old earwax and helps evaporate excess moisture. USED PROPERLY, THE BENEFITS MAY INCLUDE:
Acts as a catalyst to clear nerve endings & promote healing
Hygienic treatment of ear
How Ear Candling Works: Ear candling takes about 30-45 minutes, it’s non-invasive and has an effect which is very relaxing. The ear candle is lit on the wide end and heat is not felt in the ear canal. The negative charge of the herbal smoke and spiral shape of the candle work together to stimulate the respiratory system and cleanse. It’s a way of, “Tweaking the body and letting it balance itself.” The gentle vacuum effect of fire causes debris to be drawn up the candle toward the flame.
Important Ear Candling Notes:
Chronic conditions may take a couple times to finish the cleansing process, but they need to be spaced 7-10 days apart.
If your ears feel dry after cleansing, use a few drops of warm ear oil. This is very soothing.
Ear candling is not a cure-all. While effective in many cases, it is best to be seen first by your doctor if you are experiencing specific medical problems.
Ear candling is not recommended for 1) People who have a hole in their eardrum. 2) If you’ve had tubes in your eardrums (Can be checked to see if they have healed shut before candling.) 3) If you have difficulty breathing where small amounts of smoke is a threat. (ex. emphysema, etc.)
Excessive use is not wise or recommended.
Not For Everyone: Ear candling should not be done in the following situations:
recent ear surgery
cysts in the ear
mastoiditis in its acute phase
ear drains (tubes)
recent ear injury or damage to the ear drum
artificial ear drums
tumors of the ear
