A DIFFERENT KIND OF RELAXATION
Also known as Thermal-Auricular Ear therapy, ear candling is an alternative stress therapy claimed to improve general health and well-being by lighting one end of a hollow candle and placing the other end in the ear canal.
WHAT IS EAR CANDLING? Ear candling is a centuries old method of bringing an enhanced
state of health to the ear, nose, throat and sinus area.
IS IT EASY TO DO? Yes! By following basic simple instructions, or taking a class, Ear
Candles can be safely and easily applied providing a pleasant experience for all. As with learning any
new thing, a little nervousness at first is normal, but soon overcome after a couple of sessions.
WHAT DOES IT HELP WITH?
Ear Candling has a very consistent track record of success. Helping people with the following
problems: sinus congestion, colds, the flu, sore throats, ear aches, ear infections, sinus
infections, lymphatic congestion, swollen glands, snoring, balance and equilibrium, allergy
symptoms, hearing difficulties (most forms), pain or pressure when flying, scuba diving or other
elevation change discomfort. That is only the beginning of the list of benefits!
BUT IT DOESNT MEAN IT WILL CURE YOUR EAR PROBLEMS.
IT WILL JUST GIVE SOME RELAXING RELIEF IN YOUR EAR.
HOW DOES EAR CANDLING ACCOMPLISH ALL THIS?
With the ear candle inserted into to the ear, the heat from the flame creates a stimulating, soothing,
warming effect to the tissues in and around the ear. The mechanics of this process are partly physical
and partly energetic in nature. The result is a stimulation of lymphatic drainage in the entire
head and neck region. The Eustachian tubes open and relax allowing improved drainage and pressure
equalization. The sinuses are triggered to start draining. The body’s disease fighting immune
response is greatly enhanced in strength. This means quicker recovery and a decrease in symptom
severity from many illnesses. The acupuncture meridian system is brought into a state of enhanced
balance. The body’s other subtle energy systems (chakras and body aura) are dramatically
enhanced in strength.
Even the glandular system and emotional states are brought to harmony by the beam of warm energy
projected from the tip of the candle. In essence, Ear Candling strengthens the bodily systems,
which help make up our day-to-day sense of well being. A very effective health-building tool!
The answer to this question comes from the author’s experience with hundreds of clients. It depends
upon what your initial complaint is and how long it has bothered you. The common denominator is that
the real power of ear candling comes from repeat treatments. Each additional treatment brings your
body to a higher state of well being which after several sessions typically leaves you with an
improved state of over all health. Long term (few months to years) symptoms are
usually best treated with 4-6 sessions of 2-4 ear candles per ear over a 6 week period, followed by
several monthly treatments until the desired level of symptom relief has been reached. Short term
(recent colds, infections etc.) symptoms. These are most effectively treated by daily treatment of 2-4
ear candles per ear for a few days followed by 2-3 weekly treatments. Rapid symptom relief is usually
achieved. A maintenance schedule of 3-4 treatments a year does wonders to keep a person healthy.
EAR CANDLE RESIDUE.
The residue inside of any ear candle is mostly from the ear candle itself, the powder and wax being
remnants of the burning process. In someway reflective of changes which have occurred but not a
100% direct physical material transfer from ear to candle. Greg’s guidelines, 95% or more of ear
candle residue is from the ear candle and 95% or more of the benefits from ear candling are to
internal body systems and have very little to do with what ends up inside of the ear candle. Interesting to
look at, hard to interpret, and a small reflection of the total benefits of the ear candling process
