Most relaxing and I’d highly recommend it for anyone needing to clean out their ears due to excessive build up. Much more comfortable than a syringe full of fluids injected into the ear canal.
Ear Candling has helped with sinus pressure and the wax buildup which causes pressure and swelling behind my jaw. My jaw swelling goes away so I can chew without pain, my vertigo as well as ear and sinus pressure are gone. I am a believer.
I have had several ear candle sessions in the past and it's been a lifesaver. I have had earaches due to build-up from pollen and wax. I would recommend to anyone who has ear issues and also if you just need to relax!
Ear Candling is a non-invasive treatment to clean ears and remove excess ear wax. The hollow ear cone candle is inserted into the external ear canal. The candle is lit at the opposite end. This creates a low-level vacuum that draws ear wax into the hollow candle. After the procedure, a dark, orange waxy substance is usually left in the stub of the candle.
It is a painless, harmless and totally relaxing experience. The treatment lasts about 30 minutes. Almost everyone from infants to adults can benefit from ear candling. Many people find it to be a satisfying relaxing procedure and assist them in feeling better.

You lie on your side comfortably with your head supported by a pillow. Hair is covered with a towel and the ear is exposed to allows the insertion of the ear candle. The ear candle is lit at the top end and the end of the ear candle is placed gently in the ear. The therapist will be holding the candle throughout the process and each ear takes about 10-15 minutes. At the end of your session your therapist will place 1-2 drops of ear oil on a cotton ball and place it in your ear. Majority of people relax and fall asleep during the session.
After a Ear Candling session, if it is cold or windy, insert some cotton ball into the ear. Try not to get water in the ear for the next 24 hours. For a short time after an ear candling session, an individual may feel light-headed. Noises may seem to be much louder. Sinus drainage increases. A heightened sense of taste, smell and sight and improved hearing. For a day or two after an ear candling session an individual may experience warmth, or some itchiness in the ear canal. This can be easily relieved by simply putting a drop or two of olive oil in the ears.
