Hopi Ear Candling

Ear candles are an ancient, mild and natural therapy and have been used by the Native American Indian for many years. Hopi Ear candles are named after the Native American tribe who first introduced this gentle therapy to the West. The Hopi nation is renowned for their extensive knowledge of healing and their spiritual lifestyle. The translation of the word Hopi means "peaceful ones".

The Hopi candle is not a candle as such, but a hollow tube made out of cotton flax. They are impregnated with extract of honey and herb oils (in particular chamomile, sage and St Johns wort), the healing properties of which have been known for hundreds of years. The candle is placed over the ear orifice and ignited. It is only allowed to burn to within 4 inches of the end of the candle. As it burns it produces a gentle local heat. The warm air combined with the oil and herbs soften the wax and draw it into the base of the candle.

Treatments are very relaxing & usually take approximately 45 minutes depending on how long the candle takes to burn down. The candle is then removed and the ear and surrounding area is massaged. The treatment is repeated on the other ear and then a complete facial massage is carried out, paying particular attention to the sinus areas and drainage via the lymph nodes.

Ear Candling helps to improve circulation and lymphatic flow and drainage in the head and neck area thereby helping with the treatment of conditions such as sinusitis, tinnitus, hayfever, excessive or compacted earwax, itchy ears or dull hearing. It is also beneficial in the treatment of headaches and migraines. Regular treatments can reduce the need for syringing

Hopi Ear Candling is not suitable for those with perforated eardrums, where grommets are in place or where there is current inflammation or infection.
