Hopi Ear Candles
What are Hopi Ear Candles?
The historical roots of Hopi Ear Candling, also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy, can be traced back to the Hopi Indians from North and South America. Is a soothing, relaxing and non-invasive treatment of the ears. Ear Candles are made from 100% natural ingredients such as cotton, beeswax, honey extract, sage, St John's wort and camomile which sit at the opening of the ear canal.
The Hopi Candles have many positive benefits and can be used to treat a variety of conditions including:
- Excessive or compacted wax in the ears
- Irritation in the ears
- Soothes the head and ears
- Calming and relaxing treatment
- Releases new energies
What a typical treatment session entails
Whilst listening to relaxing music, a lymphatic facial massage is given to enhance the effectiveness of treatment. You will then be asked to lie on alternate sides, where the candle is gently placed into the auditory canal and sits comfortably and safely on top of your ear drum. The candle is then lit and held steadily in the upright position and sinus drainage is encouraged with gentle strokes to improve the benefits of the candles. You will experience an enjoyable crackling sound as the candle burns which is relaxing and soothing. After the candles have been removed you should feel very relaxed with your ears feeling much clearer with more clarity. Treatment lasts for 45 minutes.
