Navel candling is also known as stomach or tummy candling. A hollow herbal candle is lighted and placed over the belly-button. During the candling process, a gentle and relaxing massage could be applied to the abdominal area to aid in circulation. As with navel candling, the burning candle creates a vacuum and the gentle heat created assists with the dispelling of toxins.
Benefits of navel candling includes aiding the removal of toxins through the body’s lymphatic system and also alleviation of stomach flatulence, stomachache, endocrine disorders and gastric problems caused by irregular eating habits. In addition, navel candling can also aid in the relief of mild cold symptoms and enhance the body circulatory system.
