What is Ear Candling?
The ear candling process basically involves using a light and somewhat hollow candle with the intent to create a vacuum and light suction effect in the ear canal. The ear candle is usually made from natural materials coated with beeswax and other medicinal herbs.
The ear candles we use are practitioner-only and are issued an ARTG number. Our qualified and experienced Acupuncturist employs best practice protocols to get optimal results and reduce any associated risks.
Are All Ear Candles Created Equal?
The quality of the ear candle is significant as it is important to eliminate the risk of wax running into the ear causing burns or perforations. It could also explain the inconsistencies with ear candling results. At our clinic, we use carefully crafted candles manufactured in Germany from a traditional Hopi Indian recipe. The pure linen roll is impregnated with 100% beeswax and powdered medicinal herbs including sage, St. John’s wort and chamomile sourced from certified organic producers and tested free from all environmental toxins such as chemical pesticide and fungicide residues.
The eco-friendly cross-shaped linen barrier helps prevent liquid wax or excess condensate from entering the ear. The ear candles have obtained the prestigious CE mark (93/42-EEC) for medical devices in Europe. Few other ear candles in the world have this extraordinary level of certification and are regularly tested at an independent laboratory in Germany.
