Do you find when you feel a cold or flu coming on, or you have allergies and sinus congestion how your ears are stopped up they start ringing and you have swollen tender lymph nodes?
Well, an ear candling could well be something to help you find relief.
This ancient healing technique - some say it originated in China, others say Egypt, Atlantis or the Hopi Indians - supposedly used rolled up paper or leaves... These days we use hollow waxed cloth candles or cones.
One end of the cone is placed comfortably in the ear, the other end is lit, creating a vacuum that draws out impurities.
Appropriate precautions are taken to prevent any dripping hot wax or flaming candle from burning you.
Essential oil blends supporting the immune and lymphatic systems are used in combination with a gentle massage to relieve congestion, painful discomfort and help your natural ability to heal.
Ear candling has been found to bring about about easier breathing, faster recovery from cold and flu symptoms - due to better immune function, and relief of temporary hearing loss.

How often should I do this?
As a preventative measure, once or twice a year as the seasons change in Spring and Fall is good.
If you are prone to allergies triggered by particular pollens - anytime they are about to bloom will help negate the symptoms or stop them in their tracks.
Whenever you start feeling "under the weather" with allergies or cold symptoms, before they get out of hand.
After swimming in lakes or chlorinated pools.
One candling session usually is all that's needed as a preventative.
More than one visit a few days apart is advisable when you have more severe symptoms.
Allow 1-1½ hours for the visit.
