Frequently Asked Questions:

Ear Candling

  • What is to ear candling?

    • Traditionally ear candling was used in healing and spiritual ceremonies, Native Americans kept this alive as it faded out in other cultures in other parts of the world.​ We know that as the candle gently burns down it is believed to act like a ‘chimney’ creating a light vacuum effect. The flicker of the flame also creates vibrations that massage the eardrum. The herbal vapors from the lit candle also swirl into the ear canal, helping to soothe and balance the individual. Most notably, heavy head from chronic mucus problems such as sinus congestion, postnasal drip, blocked nose, and ear pressure, is reported to dramatically decrease. One of my favorite results is the calming effect it has on our emotions and the gentle grounding sensation it gives.​​

  •  How does it work?

    • Looking at the element that is most present in this treatment, fire gives us some great insight. When we think of fire, what are the most common results? Warming & drying, right? Now, let us think of the symptoms above and the tissue states that correspond. When we consider mucus, sinus congestion, & postnasal drip, the dominant tissue states would be damp, moist, & stagnant. To balance this out, we would introduce herbs and treatments that would either nourish or alter those states. Utilizing the element of fire with ear candling alters not only the tissue state but the energy field around the individual receiving the treatment.

  • Can we diagnose ailments?​

    • No. As licensed massage practitioners, we are not able to diagnose or cure medical conditions.
