Ear Candling

We want to make sure our clients receive the highest quality of care.  That is why Alicia uses 100% bee's wax candles.  Ear candling, also referred to as coning, uses a holistic approach to address a variety of ailments.  

The most common is ear wax.  While ear wax does play a role in maintaining lubrication of the ear, an overabundance of ear wax can cause problems within the ear.   Our first instinct is to grab a cotton swab and remove the excess wax.  However, this can cause damage to the ear canal and drum.

Ear candles can be used on most anyone, provided they don't have any of the following contraindications (provided by the school of life studies):

  • Infection in or around the ear
  • Auricular cysts
  • Inflammation of the ear
  • Recent surgery on the ear (within three months)
  • Perforation or lack of ear drum
  • Grommets, drains or ventilation tubes fitted
  • Allergies to beeswax
  • Acute mastoiditis
  • Otosclerosis or Otospangiosis
  • Ear Tumor
  • Pregnant or possibly pregnant
  • People who have cancer or recently suffered from cancer

The Ear Candling Process

The process runs between 30-45 minutes.  As you lay down to relax, the coned edge is placed into the ear canal, while the other end is lit and carefully monitored by Alicia.  Ear Candling can be used to help alleviate:

  • Allergies (nasal and throat)
  • Colds
  • Ear aches/pain
  • Ear inflammation
  • Glue ear/Blocked ear
  • Headaches
  • Sinus infections
  • Sinus pressure
  • Releasing blocked energy
  • Relief of tensions throughout the body
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Waxy buildup
    ...and more
