Ear Candling is such a unique and historic treatment, and is so effective that many people attest to the value of ear candling in cleansing the ear canals and sinus passages, as years of built-up debris can be removed in the first few candling sessions. The Indians of North America have long understood the problems associated with this build-up in the ears and developed a soft wax tube that they inserted in each ear in turn. A heat vacuum is created, drawing material from the ear up into the candle, where it is evaporated in the flame. Conventional ear cleaning processes done at home or in the doctor’s office will never come close to removing what this gentle technique can extract. The excessive build-up of earwax, impacted plugs and candida fungus can cause hearing problems, infections and discomfort in the ears. Hearing impairment often creates distress and frustration, which in some children can even have an effect on their learning ability and speech. Candling provides the ears with deep cleansing, removing wax and debris build-up that is normally difficult to reach, and impossible to remove. It is non-invasive and gentle and is recommended for both children and adults.
