Ear candling may provide a gentle and soothing relief for ear and sinus congestion experienced by adults and children.
The use of ear candling can be found historically in traditional healing methods by many cultures around the world.
How Does Ear Candling Work?
Ear candling is used to assist in loosening the wax in the outer section of the ear. The skin of the ear canal is lined with hair follicles and glands that produce waxy oil for protection of the ear from dust and foreign particles. This wax eventually makes its way to the opening of the ear where it falls out.
Problems may arrive when the wax is forced back into the ear by objects or poor cleaning methods and may cause a blockage. If this could be the case then an appointment with you regular Dr would be advised to ensure there is no further complication.
What Is Ear Candling Used To Treat?
Ear candling is used mostly for the relief of congestion from the build-up of ear wax, congestion from colds and flu and congestion from swimming, surfing or air travel.
Treatment using ear candling is beneficial for occasional cleaning of the ears and stimulation of the immune system as well as congestion in the sinus.
