UPDATE TO THIS ARTICLE: We no longer offer ear candling services at our Rochester location.
I am so happy to introduce Ear Candling to CNY Healing Arts in Rochester. For those who are wondering what this is, it would be my pleasure to elaborate. Ear Candling dates back 2,500 years to the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, Tibetan, and American Indian cultures. Today it is being practiced all over the world. This ancient tradition is a safe, simple, natural way to remove excess wax and debris from inside the ears. Long tapered candles are inserted gently into the ears then lit. The candles are never forced into the ear they just sit on the outside of the ear canal, and you are fully covered the entire time. The candle creates a slight vacuum effect, oxidizing, vaporizing and drawing softened wax and debris from the ears into the surface of the candle. This is a very relaxing, gentle, non invasive and safe process.
This treatment does not hurt. Most people experience a gentle warmth which has a very soothing relaxing effect. There is a slight crackling sound as the candle burns. It kind of reminds me of a campfire, and most people love a soothing campfire. The whole process takes about a 1/2 hour to 45 min. We will use peppermint, eucalyptus, or lavender oil to gently massage the head, face, and sinus’s. You will love this!
Most reported benefits have been, relief of pressure in the ears and sinus’s. Improved hearing, safe removal of excess wax and debris, helps balance and equilibrium including vertigo, helps eliminate ringing and itching inside the ears, fewer ear aches and infection, this also helps to fight infection while keeping toxins down in the ears. The clean feeling itself makes worth coming. I have been doing candling on myself, my clients, and my 11 year old son for the past 5 years. This is safe for the whole family.
The only people who should not receive this treatment are those who have had recent ear surgery, cysts in the ears, mastoiditis in it’s acute phase, ear drains (current), recent injury to the ears or ear drums, artificial ear drums and tumors of the ear.
Ear Candling is one of my most popular, and relaxing services. This is also a service with instant results. Once you feel what it’s like to have clean and healthy ears you will be hooked! I hope I have answered any questions you may have had about Ear Candling. Call CNY Healing Arts today to book your candling appointment at our Rochester location.
Hope to see you soon!
