Ear candling is also known as thermal-auricular therapy. Dr. Girard has experienced a noticeable benefit from ear candling and offers this to her patients. This involves using a parafin wax ear candle that is hollow and inserted in the ear. By lighting the far end of the candle, a draw is created that softens and extracts lodged wax. Patients will often experiences small popping or crackling sounds when the wax breaks free. Most patients find it an extremely relaxing procedure.
The doctor will also advise you to stay out of cold water for the next week as the ear may be more susceptible to cold water.
