The client lies on his/her side with the therapist at their head. The candle, which acts as a vacuum, is placed in the ear and lit. The vibration of the air rising up through the candle is promoted by the natural movement of the flame, to gently massage the eardrum. This creates a warm swirling current of air. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. Most of these are carried away through the candle “chimney”, although some of them can be found in the condensed candle wax residue after removal from the ear, or could even work their way up to the surface 24-48 hours after.
Generally the whole treatment will take around 30 minutes inclusive of the consultation.
Ear Candling is safe and very relaxing and can help with many complaints, including:
-Congestion in nose area
-Ear problems through flying.
The mechanism of action, principle of function:
During the ear candling treatment we insert the ear candle to the entrance of the external auditory canal. The auditory canal is a more or less curved tube closed by the eardrum. The ear candle is also a tube and during ear candling it extends the auditory canal.
When we light the top of the ear candle, the burning energy starts to heat up and vibrates the air column inside the ear candle. A few seconds later, after we lit the ear candle, a lukewarm swinging, vibrating air column is formed within the ear candle and the auditory canal.
The presence of this motion is demonstrated by the up and down movement and vibration of the ear candle’s flame. This motion is visible during the whole ear candling treatment. The frequency of this vibration is 2-5 Hz. The level of frequency is mainly determined by the length and the diameter of the ear candle and its cone shape. This frequency is much lower than the audible level for humans, but the eardrum can still perceive it. The eardrum takes over the vibration of the swinging-vibrating air column of the ear candle because the air column touches the end of the auditory canal.
Let’s not forget how sensitive our auditory system is (part of which is the ear drum and other minute anatomical parts vibrated by it): for instance, we are able to hear the tiny sound created by a falling needle metres far from us.
An ear candle burns for approximately 10-15 minutes in one ear. So the air column of the ear candle vibrates the eardrum and its related anatomical parts for 10-15 minutes at a frequency which is very different from the audible range of 20-20000 Hz. In fact, it is just like a gentle massage of the auditory system which lasts for 10-15 minutes.
We believe this is the physical effect which triggers beneficial processes during the ear candle treatment.
