Body, Face and Ear Candling: Your Secret Weapon for Good Health
If you spend the spring and summer months sneezing from hay fever and the winter sniffling with a cold or congestion, then candling might just be the secret weapon you’ve been looking for. A natural healing remedy, face and ear candling is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions that affect both the sinuses, lymphatics and the auditory system.
I came across this technique many years ago for my severe hay fever and sinus (I’ve been practicing it for 20 years myself), and was hooked after my first treatment. Non-invasive and pain-free, ear candling uses a specially designed candle to draw excessive wax, fluid and residue from your sinuses on your face and from the ear, so it’s great for clearing up those bunged-up, heavy-headed colds, congestion, flu, hay fever and sinus symptoms. But that’s not where the benefits end. Asthma, rhinitis, otitis media, hearing difficulties, vertigo, tinnitus, headaches and migraines, Oedema, tonsillitis, glandular viruses, surfers and swimmers ear, bites (including spider & mosquitoes) and wounds or skin, viral and bacterial infections, frequent flyers and can all be effectively treated with body, ear or face candling. It also has a great effect in detoxifying the body and reduces stress and tension related the above ailments.
Candling is a very holistic, non-invasive, relaxing treatment that focusses on letting go of blockages within the body, both physically, mentally and emotionally.
When I first started practicing the technique, I specialized in allergies (Sinus, Hay fever & Asthma). It was a condition I was familiar with, and one which seemed to affect a limitless amount of adults and children. Among its many benefits, is the speed with which candling works, and I saw (and continue to see) huge improvements in my clients after only one treatment. The second benefit of this treatment is the sustainability of the results. Patients with severe symptoms required regular sessions, but none more frequently than once every four to six months, and each session brings with it a greater vitality and improvement. After a year or two the majority of patients find they can reduce their treatments to once or twice a year.
Childhood Ear Problems
Many babies and small children have issues with their auditory systems, particularly otitis media with effusion (OME). Also known as ‘glue ear’, this common childhood condition often resolves itself. However, in more severe cases it can require an operation and grommets - small tubes inserted into the ear to help drain excess fluid from the ear canal. Ear candling is the only natural therapy that can effectively tackle OME. While the technique has garnered a lot of negative press (many doctors often would condemn it as useless), my success treating children with this condition has now earned me more than a few referrals from these medical specialists and it is the preferred option by many specialists for cleaning the ear safely.
Candling is an ancient therapeutic treatment used over 2500 years ago by both the Hopi Native Americans and also the Egyptians which applies simple laws of science. The flame of the candle (when the candle is properly seated in the ear or on the body) creates a draw or vacuum which pulls the wax and other particles of debris out of the ear and up into the candle.
The vacuum is caused by the warmed air from the flame and the colder existing air moving through the hollow chamber of the candle. The movement and compression between the ear canal and the canal chamber generate air flow with increasing velocity, thus producing the ‘sucking vacuum’. This has the same effect through the pores of the skin on the face and body through the lymphatic system and the sinuses.
Others suggest that the vacuum caused by the burning flame and hollow candle helps to draw toxins and excessive wax out of the ear. I believe the later however, whatever the reason behind its effectiveness, as a treatment for common conditions like hay fever, colds, flus, asthma and otitis media, ear candling really is second to none.
I have seen over 3500 clients for candling over the years. A huge thanks to some of my lovely clients for sharing their experiences with Body and Ear candling:
"I always have congestion and sinus issues; I couldn’t believe during the session that I could feel the congestion drying up and clearing instantly. It was like a miracle, one that I had waited so long for as it had been so debilitating for me for so many years. Now I only have 2 sessions a year and I haven’t taken any sinus medication in over three years, nor have I had the flu or tonsillitis which I had too often."
"I had a spider bite on my arm which was red, hard and very painful, after Jo candled the spider bite the redness and hardness disappeared completely and the pain was gone. After an hour after the session I couldn’t even feel or see the bite anymore."
“I started having problems with my ear plus my sinuses were completely blocked, which made breathing through my nose in yoga class extremely difficult and rather annoying. I tried ear candling at home with small candles and ear drops from the chemist, but the results were minimal. After speaking with Jo at one of her group healing evenings, I booked in to have my ears professionally candled. I couldn't believe how blocked up my ears were, and I am such a clean freak! I would highly recommend ear candling to anyone who wants to feel more balanced, clear and refreshed.”
“I can't recommend Jo's ear candling enough. I have suffered from debilitating sinus issues and have noticed a significant improvement after only two sessions. I was amazed at how relaxing it is & look forward to each session as it has benefited me to no end.”
“Our 18-month-old daughter was struggling to speak and having problems hearing us. Having discovered that her ear fluid was not draining, specialists were keen to insert grommets into her ear. Jo came very highly recommended, and I am so glad we tried out ear candling first. After the first session, my daughter slept so peacefully. My husband and I were both shocked by the amount of wax and fluid that came out in the first session, and we couldn’t believe the results. Our daughter responded straight away when we spoke to her, she could finally hear us! After 2-3 weeks, she started to make new sounds and even said her first words. We can’t thank Jo enough and we recommend her highly. She changed the life of our little girl, and we are so glad that we didn’t put her through the operation the specialists and doctors had thought necessary. Thank you, Jo!”
I had been suffering from a bad sinus infection for two weeks. The whole session with Jo was very relaxing and so much wax and other 'stuff' came out it was amazing to see the reason as to what was causing me such pain and congestion. What's more amazing is that I didn't feel any sucking or pulling as this was happening. The candle simply rests at the opening of your ear. The session finished with a beautiful massage and I left feeling 'light' in the head, in a good way, and with my fingers crossed I would start to feel better within 24 hours... I woke up the next morning with absolutely no pain at all! My face, head and glands were no longer tender and swollen. I felt completely clear in the head. I was blown away at how something as simple as extracting ear wax and sinus congestion could make me 100% better - and so quickly.
I also want to mention that even before getting sick I would always wake up heavy headiness, almost like an allergy headache or tension pain in the head and neck which I just put down to tiredness - due to two active non sleeping toddlers. This had been the case for about 3 or more years. Since I've had the ear candling done I wake up completely clear and completely pain free. I'm not exaggerating when I say this alone has been life changing for me and my wellbeing. Thanks so much Jo!
