Ear Candling


$50.00 plus tax (2 candles - one per ear)

$59.90 plus tax (4 candles - two per ear)

*Number of candles are determined at appointment* 

The healing method now called ear candling has been around for centuries.  Many nations have used the method for thousands of years.  Ear candling was originally used for purification prior to or as part of ancient rites of initiation.  Ear candling was used to assist in opening the body's spiritual centers, thus cleaning and cleansing the spiritual body through the physical. 

Given its name because the practitioner uses a hollow waxed cloth candle, this simple remedy assists in the removing of ear wax and may improve any of the following conditions:

Sinus Problems, Sore Throat, Ear Ache, Swimmers Ear, Chronic Headaches, Allergies and Hearing Difficulty.

There is no discomfort to the person receiving the treatment; old ear wax and noxious toxins are drawn up into the candle which has been placed gently in the ear and lit.  The low flame of the burning candle creates a slow vacuum which softens and pulls the old wax into the base of the candle.  Facial and neck massage is also incorporated into the procedure to aid with loosening up congestion and to help with the drainage.

A typical candling client is one searching for a more "natural way" to alleviate pressure in their head or upper respiratory area, or someone in search of relief from pain in their children's ears, or to hear, smell, see or just plain feel better.

A person with severe pain can be candled three times (2 candles per ear) 48 hours apart.  It takes the ears about 24 hours to replace their protective coating of wax if it has been removed, therefore, it is not advisable to do the ear candling every day.  A typical session depends upon the number of candles being used, they will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes for each candle to burn down to 3-4 inches long.  Therefore a complete session will range from 45 minutes - 1 hour.
