What Causes Ear Wax Drainage

The Breakdown on Ear Candling and How it Can Benefit You

Earwax build up is often caused by pollution, noise and dust. It is this build up, that needs removing as earwax is vital to our overall wellbeing.  Ear wax along with the hair in our ears, performs like a shock absorber for sound waves.  In addition earwax inhibits foreign materials and dust piercing the eardrum.

The use of ear candles has many influences on the body.  The candle supports the body's own healing process by relaxing the body, through the sense of warmth that is created in the candle, as when the body is relaxed it begins to work more efficiently.  The movement of wax from the heat generated by the candle enables circulation of the entire head area to return.  Furthermore reflex points, which are similar to those found in the feet and hands, can be found in the outer ear area.  These reflex points are stimulated by the warmth of the candle, thus this stimulation further contributes to the body's overall wellbeing.

Ear candling may benefit a wide variety of conditions including; allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue, glue ear, hay fever, hearing problems, migraines, sinusitis and stress.

The burn time for each candle is roughly 15 minutes.  Conversely a typical ear candling session is approximately one hour in length, this is to enable a second candle to be used if necessary.The client will experience the sensation of the candle being gently positioned into the ear.  Additionally whilst the wax is being drawn out from the ear, crackling and popping sounds may be heard.The ear candling session should not cause any discomfort, if you experience any feelings of pain or distress, inform the therapist and they will stop the treatment and continue the session only when you feel ready. 

Individuals who have extreme loss of hearing may experience a deeper sense of heat within the ear, during the candling, as their sense of feeling is more heightened than that of a person with good hearing.At the conclusion of your session some time is allocated for you to relax, the therapist to support and promote the clearing of the sinuses and rid the body of toxins, may give you a head, neck, ear or sinus massage.  Following the treatment you may find drainage occurs from the sinuses or excess wax drains from the ears overnight, this is common and demonstrates that the ear candling was successful.  Furthermore if a feeling of light-headedness and/or sensitivity to noise, due to the blockage being removed should take place, adding a few drops of ear oil onto a small piece of cotton wool and inserting it into the ear can ease the discomfort. 

Most people find Ear Candling deeply relaxing and enjoy the tension it releases throughout the body.  It is also extremely safe when carried out by a qualified practitioner. It is wise to carry out some research and select a therapist who is either a member of, or accredited by, an association or professional body.
