EAR Candling

What are the Benefits of Ear Candling?
Many patients experience ear candling benefits and find it helps prevent or relieve many common infections of the head and neck including sinus congestion, colds, the flu, sore throats, ear aches, ear infections, sinus infections, lymphatic congestion, swollen glands, snoring, balance and equilibrium issues, allergy symptoms, hearing difficulties, pain or pressure when flying, scuba diving or other elevation change discomfort.
 
How Does it Work?
The Healing Bridge in Calgary performs ear candling by inserting a hollow ear candle into the ear and lighting the wick at the opposite end. The heat from the flame creates a stimulating, soothing, warming effect in and around the ear.The result is the stimulation of lymphatic drainage in the entire head and neck region. The Eustachian tubes open and relax to allow pressure equalization and, as a result, the sinuses and lymph system are triggered to drain.
   
Is it Safe?
Our ear candling practitioners will ensure the candle wick is trimmed to ensure the candle flame is optimal. At The Healing Bridge, we also ensure no wax will drip onto the patient or is left behind in the ear canal. When removing any wax from the ear canal, we also ensure there is no damage to the tympanic membrane (ear drum).
