ear candling

  1. I thought I was getting a sinus infection, you know the pain and pressure and congestion. I had heard about ear candling a while ago and thought I'd try it. A massage therapist use a candle made out of beeswax (I think that is what she said) wrapped around a cone and palced in the ear which creates a vaccuum and sucks out the cerumen and the infection, while she is massaging your face.
    It feels good and it actually works! The pressure was gone after the therapy! I was just wondering if anyone else had had this done and they liked it?

    Yes I have had it done, it was great. Matter of fact the tech taught me what to do and I have been doing my families ears. Makes your head feel 100 lbs. lighter.

    Actually, I've heard of it as an "old-world" remedy using a newspaper rolled into a cone shape. Kinda cool to hear of "old stuff" becoming "new stuff."
