Roy's Holistic Therapies
In the western world it is believed ear candling can help to balance the body's energy system or chakras by the action of the flame which causes subtle vibrations in the eardrum which transmit themselves to the chakras helping with their balance. The chimney effect created by the ear candle is thought to cause the rising air to gently massage the eardrum and promote secretion within the sinuses which results in regulation and balance of ear pressure. The warmth created within the ear by the candle is also thought to stimulate the immune system and reinforce the flow of lymph. Ear candles used for candling in the western world are hollow tubes generally made from beeswax, linen and herbs, and all are manufactured to strict guidelines.
