An Ancient Therapy
        Oriental Coning is not a new alternative therapy. Its beginnings date back as far as biblical times when hollow reeds from swamp areas where used. It has been passed down for many generations and its use has spread to many cultures including the Egyptian, Greek and Oriental cultures. It was also practiced by cultures as diverse as the Tibetan Monks and the Ancient Mayans. While its original use was spiritual in nature, the Egyptians and Greeks used it to improve clarity and focus. All types of people began to recognize the value of coning in the treatment of common ear aliments, and the practice spread to virtually every country in the modern world, including the United States. The Asians fine-tuned this to an art by integrating ancient oils and healing acupressure techniques.

What is Oriental Coning?
         Coning is a natural way to clean the ears, including external and middle ear canals and the Eustachian tube. It also gather toxins from the sinuses and lymphatic system. Ear cones are custom designed from natural fibers (not wax, as with candling) and tapered to precise specifications for your comfort.

What are the benefits of Oriental Coning?
         Some people believe that some of the conditions on this list have benefited them in a positive way . (we make no claims)

  • Headaches
  • Ear Infections
  • TMJ Dysfunction
  • Excessive Wax
  • Ringing in the Ears
  • Plugged Ears
  • Hearing Challenges
  • Inner Ear Pressure
  • Migraines
  • Chronic Sinusitis

How does it work?
        As the cone burns, gentle warm air is drawn into the ear canal, softening and loosening internal matter. It is a natural way to clean out accumulated wax, Candida debris, foreign particles, and white flaky fungus from the ears. The accumulations withdrawn from your ears may be months or even years old. Smoke gathers toxins from the sinuses and lymphatic system. As the cone burns it creates a gentle vacuum that facilitates the removal of the loosened debris and toxins.

What to Expect
        During a Coning Session you lie on your side with your body in a straight alignment. A special cone (tapered at one end) is gently inserted in your ear. The cone is lit and slowly begins to burn. You will feel a slight warming of your ear canal as the mild heat melts the wax and debris in your ear. IT IS TOTALLY PAINLESS AND HARMLESS. It is a soothing and relaxing experience that is both beneficial and enjoyable.

What to Expect after a Session
        Some say they have experienced improved hearing because the wax blockage was no longer in their ears. For a day or two you may feel a warmth or itching in your ears. To relive these symptoms we suggest you purchase our SEED SEPT EXTRACT product (which is applied with a Q-tip). Besides relieving the symptoms, it is a great maintenance product for good ear health. You may also notice during your session that your sinuses are draining or that sinus drainage increases after your session.
