What is Hopi Ear Candling?

Hopi Ear Candling also known as Thermo Auricular Therapy, is an ancient therapy with positive benefits. This natural therapy was handed down by many civilisations. It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles, initially probably for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, but much later on a purely physical basis.

The treatment involves the use of a flax tube impregnated with beeswax, honey and often essential oils, referred to as a candle. It is a deeply relaxing, soothing and non-invasive treatment of the ears, which offers real and calming benefits for many problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat areas. In fact the therapy is widely used by doctors in Europe and America as an alternative to conventional treatments such as antibiotics and ear syringing.

The Benefits

As their action is so gentle, Hopi Ear Candles are ideal for all ages and especially beneficial for children and elderly people. They can be used to help with many conditions including congested sinuses, irritation in the ears, deafness caused by excess wax, ringing or noises in the ears, tinnitus, rhinitis, glue ear, colds, flu, headaches and migraines.

The Treatment

You will be made comfortable on my treatment couch, lying on your side with your head supported by a comfy pillow and covered in a soft blanket. A safety cloth will be placed over the ear and the candle will be gently placed into the outer ear canal. The candle is then lit at the top and a chimney effect allows the air to give the ear drum a gentle massage, which helps to equalise the air pressure. The candle creates a pleasant crackling sound and a comfortable warm feeling in the outer ear canal.  After about 15 minutes the ear candle is carefully and safely removed and extinguished in a bowl of water. Both ears will be treated, followed by a relaxing facial massage that finishes the treatment.
