Hopi Ear Candles -Thermal Auricular Therapy
Ear Candles have been used for centuries. It is an ancient Native American treatment using natural ingredients: linen, beeswax, honey, chamomile & sage (is the traditional blend although others are available too) rolled into a ‘candle’, placed into the ear and lit.
Hopi Ear Candles can benefit conditions affecting the head and ears such as sinus congestion, ear noises and excessive earwax. The rising air through the column of the candle and gentle natural movement of the flame serve to gently massage the ear drum. This has an immediate subjective effect of regulating ear pressure. Users often describe a soothing, light sensation in the ear/head area and a general calming, relaxing effect.
It is often used by people with:
Hayfever and rhinitis
Excessive ear wax
Many people report an enhanced sense of smell and hearing which might take a few minutes to adjust to.
Hopi ear candles should not be used if there is any inflammation or infection in the ear and are not suitable for people who have had recent ear surgery or those with ear grommets or tubes, perforated ear drums or allergies to any of the products in the candle.
Each candle takes approx. 10/12 minutes to burn, followed by a gentle face massage to complete the treatment total time around 30-35 minutes in total.
Ear Candling is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears, treatment cost £25.00
