Ear Candling treatments originate from traditional Chinese, Egyptian, and Eastern European medicine.
One end of a cylinder or cone of waxed cloth is lit, and the other is placed into the subject’s ear. The flame is cut back occasionally with scissors and extinguished between five and ten centimeters (two to four inches) from the client.
The client is lying on one side with the treated ear uppermost and the candle vertical. The candle is stuck through a paper plate to protect against any hot wax or ash falling. A dish of water is placed next to the subject under the ear candle.
Proponents claim that the flame creates negative pressure, drawing wax and debris out of the ear canal, which appears as a dark residue.
An ear candling session lasts up to 30 minutes during which one candles may be burned for each ear.
This can be added to your massage session.
“I asked Lisa to candle my ears as I was being told I wasn’t hearing well. I knew candling was successful, so Lisa candled my ears. I have noticed a significant improvement in my hearing. The candling creates a suction effect that really cleans out the ear canal. I would highly recommend it.”
