Here's the Lowdown on Ear Candling
Are you wondering what ear candling is or what the benefits are? Bliss are here to answer all of your questions!
So what IS Ear candling?
Ear candling is a frequently used treatment to remove excess ear wax, however it is also a very holistic treatment as it focuses on letting go of blockages within the body.
What happens during the procedure?
Hollow candles are inserted through a hole in a small cone specially designed to fit comfortably in the ear. The candle is lit at the opposite end. This creates a low-level vacuum that draws ear wax and other debris out of the ear and into the hollow candle. After the procedure, a dark, waxy substance may be found as the therapist empties the candle contents onto a tissue for you to see. Many people find it to be a satisfying procedure as they can visually see all the excess wax they were carrying around. Ear candling is also very beneficial for sinus congestion and many people say they can hear and breathe more easily after a treatment. You should not feel any pain from the treatment, just a hissing noise and a warm feeling from your ear.
