Ear Candling is a gentle and non-invasive therapy dating back to 2500 B.C. The ancient cultures of the Mayan, Aztec, Tibetan, Chinese and Native American. Candles/cones are made of unbleached cotton or linen, dipped in paraffin or beeswax which is infused with herbs, and flower essences. The spiral roll built into the candle creates a gentle downward flow of warm air and smoke, which is carried into the ear canal. The heat softens wax and debris. The gentle candle placement creates a counter-clockwise “vacuum” action which evaporates excess fluid and gently brings up the softened wax/debris out of the ear canal. Ear Candling is a highly effective modality used for some of the following issues: sinusitis, allergy symptoms, muffled hearing, build up of wax/debris and/or fluid in the ears and/or sinus, tinnitus, vertigo, balance. A gentle Facial Lymphatic Drainage Massage can be added to this treatment to aid in release of debris and fluid. In addition it can also be helpful in addressing a wide range of conditions: can reduce fatigue, menstrual cramps, as well as sinusitis and hay fever allergies. When one suffers from hay fever, the body’s immune system goes into high gear as it over reacts to pollen, mold spores or other foreign body invaders. The result is irritation and inflammation of the sinus region. Lymphatic drainage massage can relieve these hay fever symptoms. For those suffering from sinus infections, Lymphatic drainage procedures can remove much of this congestive material from around the facial area. It allows the body’s own healing system to do what it is intended to do.
The majority of individuals experience immediate positive results and great relaxation from this combination of treatments.
