Hopi Ear Candling


Hopi Ear Candling is a non-invasive treatment providing an effective way of treating ear, nose and throat conditions. It involves inserting a hopi ear candle into the opening of the ear with you laying on your side on a treatment couch supported by pillows.

Hopi Ear Candle or (also known as Thermo-Auricular Therapy) are hollow tubes made of cotton, soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs. When lit, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and creating a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating removal of excess wax and impurities.

Small finger circles around the ears whilst the Hopi ear candles are burning helps to ease congestion.

You will experience a pleasant crackling sound as the candle burns and a warm comfortable feeling. When the ear candling is complete a waxy substance is normally left inside the base of the candle. Nothing is removed from the ear during the treatment but some may find a slight discharge from the ear afterwards as compacted ear wax may become lose and drain away.

After the ear candling has been performed on both ears you will lye on your back so a facial drainage massage can help promote drainage of fluids, reduce tension in the sinuses and temples. Improve circulation of blood and nutrients. Reduce eye bags and dark circles. It also can help reduce swelling and will help enhance the positive effects of the ear candling.

I use genuine Hopi Ear Candles which are premium quality, pesticide free, unbleached woven cotton with pure beeswax. They are free from paraffin and other synthetic ingredients. The candles are filtered to prevent any back-flow returning to the ear candle.
