Ear Candling

A Simple Explanation



Ear candling is a remedy that can be used to remove excessive ear wax buildup for you and your pets.  You naturally have wax in your ear canal and guess what - it's supposed to be there! It protects the surface of the ear canal and because it's a little sticky, it traps anything that shouldn’t be getting into your ear - like dust, tiny insects, and bacteria.
Candling is an ancient treatment that has been used for thousands of years and today continues to be widely used by practitioners to treat a range of issues. Ancient Tibet, China, Egypt, the pre-Columbian Americas are cited as possible contributors.

Ear candling is done with a hollow conical waxed cloth candle. The narrow tip is inserted into the ear and the opposite wider end is lit. The procedure and heat create a low-level vacuum that draws wax and other debris out of the ear canal. There is no heat or pain involved inside the ear canal and is a very relaxing procedure.
The procedure takes about an hour. The candling treatment helps to rebalance the pressure in and around the eardrum, soothing and calming many symptoms The process of Ear Candling for your pet involves having your pet lie down on a towel or blanket, placing your pet’s head on your lap or floor, whilst the cone in placed gently in the ear and ignited.  We will then massage your pet’s ear canal and neck while the candle draws out the wax.  A peaceful experience for you and your pet.
