Detailed Description: It is effective in reducing earache, itchiness of ears, headache, migraine, ear noise, Stress and nervous tension. Ear candling, also called ear coning or thermal-auricular therapy, is a folk medicine practice said to assist the natural clearing of earwax (cerumen) and remove toxins from a person's ear by means of a hollow candle placed in the ear. It involves lighting one end of the hollow candle, and placing the other end in the ear canal. One end of a cylinder or cone of waxed cloth is lit, and the other placed into the subject's ear. Usually the subject is lying on one side with the treated ear uppermost and the candle vertical, perhaps stuck through a paper plate or aluminum pie tin to protect against any hot wax or ash falling down the side. However some have the subject sit up, keep the candle nearly horizontal, and watch for dripping wax. Most injuries result from hot wax dripping back in which is eliminated with this method. The flame is extinguished approximately two inches from the body, sometimes using a dish of water. Some of those who have undergone ear candling report improved hearing and clearer sinuses. Its proponents claim that the flame creates negative pressure, drawing wax and debris out of the ear canal, which appears as a dark residue. A 1996 study concluded that ear candling does not produce negative pressure and fails to remove ear wax. Ear candles produce the same residue when burnt without ear insertion, and the residue is simply candle wax and soot.
An ear candling session can last up to 45 minutes, during which time a series of 1 or 2 ear candles may be burned for each ear. The experience is generally described as being unusual, but pleasant and relaxing. However, there is also the rare danger of burns or damage to the ear from hot wax or ash when candles without filters are used.
The Colon Therapists Network website says "You may hear some crackling and popping" and "you may feel some heat during the ear candling session. " It cautions that ear candling should not be practiced on people who have ear tubes (grommets), perforated ear drums, or artificial ear drums, and says ear candlers should use an otoscope to examine their client's ears before and after the session
