is used primarily for cleaning the ears and to promote a healthy atmosphere in the ears, sinus cavities and throat. There are, however, several other benefits. The process may regulate pressure, assist with post nasal drip, sinusitis, catarrh, migraines, some forms of hearing loss, and restoration of equilibrium.
The spiral of the cone draws out debris. Smoke goes into the ear. Picture a chimney with its’ fire and oxygen dynamics. A draw is created. Debris is osmotically drawn through the eardrum into the cone. In the outer ear canal excess hardened wax plugs may also be drawn out. It creates a reverse osmotic pressure that equalizes the Eustachian tube pressure. Candling is very soothing, relaxing and non-invasive. At no point does the tip of the cone in the ear get hot to the touch. Heat is not a factor.
This is a healing process. We suggest three conings, three to seven days apart. This allows the process to complete a cycle of clearing accumulated debris. After that, groupings of three until you have completed your process. Normal earwax replenishes itself within 24 hours. Thereafter the ear can be coned every six months.
This starts a cleansing process, which is normal. You may feel increased pressure in the ears, fluid in the ears, movement or inflammation of the lymphatic system. Your body is clearing. Allow it! Cranial fluids are being realigned. You may feel improvements in sight, color perception and balance. This is due to subtle changes in energy flow. (If the pressure reaches a point of distracting discomfort, a follow-up coning should be done as soon as possible, as a strong movement has begun which needs completion.)
Misalignment of occipital lobes, which lie underneath the base of the skull become pulled down from beneath the skull, as a result of stresses. The flow of cerebral fluid in the brain will become impaired, causing congestion in the ears, sinus cavity and neck tension, even moving to the shoulders. When coning, ongoing adjustment of the occipitals is recommended by chiropractic, though not absolutely necessary.
Coning works directly on the chakra system to clear and strengthen the auric bodies. It is said to dislodge discarnate entities and negativity. It's like smudging your insides. The ear contains nerve endings and acupuncture points to every other area of the body, mind and emotions. The nerve endings are connected by streams of the subtle energy flow which carry our life force energy. If hearing is impaired or blocked, we are disconnected from that energy. Ear coning acts as a catalyst to clear out debris accumulated on nerve endings. This allows for clear vibrational flow to the corresponding area of the mind, body and spirit. This clears the way for other methods of healing.
Ear candling should not be done to people who have ear tubes, perforated ear drums, or artificial ear drums. Ear candlers will use an otoscope to examine their client's ears before and after the session.
