Navel Candling, also called Stomach Candling or Tummy Candling, involves burning a hollow herbal candle placed over the naval. The burning candle creates a vacuum and the heat is thought to help with expelling toxins by sucking debris through it, out of the navel cavity.
During the process, a light abdominal massage can be performed to help promoting blood circulation. Other supposed benefits are stimulating the body’s lymphatic system, and alleviation of bloating, abdominal pains, endocrine disorders and gastric problems.
The combination of Navel Candling and Abdominal Massage can be found in a variety of countries, such as in China, Malaysia and Indonesia.
