Ear candling is a form of treatment that can have many benefits. It regulates fluids causing wax build-up, helps improve hearing and eliminates recurrent ear pain or discharge. If you have problems with motion sickness, chronic sinusitis, stress or irritability, an ear candling treatment from Dr. Liu can help.
A Relaxing, Clearing Therapy
Ear candling is a relaxing, clearing therapy which involves the used of a hollow candle with the narrow end held gently onto the edge of the ear. A heat vacuum is created, drawing material from the ear into the candle where it is evaporated into the flame. If an ear infection is suspected, patients are advised to seek medical treatment. Once the infection has been treated and the ear is clear, candling can be performed.
