Ear Candles have a purely physical function. A light suction action (Chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the Ear Candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum.
This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is soothing and helpful for earache and headache, ear noise, stress and nervousness. These benefits have been well known through 19 years of experience and confirmed by thousands of doctors worldwide.
This physical effect is often described directly after the treatment as a soothing, pressure and pain relieving sensation, mainly in the ear and head area.
Treatment may also spontaneously cause freer nasal breathing and an improved sense of smell, even when the nose was blocked before treatment.
Furthermore, the whole ceremony brings a wonderful relaxation, a deep sense of security and a feeling of happiness, which is seldom experienced.
