Ear candles are made up of cotton or linen that's wound up in a cone shape, soaked in wax and then allowed to harden. The hollow candle is placed into the external ear canal and lit at the opposite end. Through a process called "convection," softer wax and toxins will be drawn out of the ear, oxidized and turned into vapors during the procedure.
Ear candling can benefit almost everyone, including children with swimmer's ear, and people with chronic ear problems and poor drainage. Chronic sinusitis clients get relief as well as people who wear hearing aids. Also, those who have had previous ear injuries as they tend to have a greater build up of wax. Most of our clients have done this before they go on an airplane to prevent problems with their ears and their children's ears. We offer family sessions.
Symptoms of hearing loss include:
The procedure is approximately 45 minutes. AIt is painless and relaxing. If it weren't for the intermittent crackling due to the burning of the wax being drawn up the chimney of the candle, you would never know anything is happening in the ear.
Most people need to have 2-3 sessions to get their ears cleaned, every 3-6 months would be practical. The Per session fee is $45.00.
