What are Ear Hopi Candles?

Do you suffer from any ear/nose or throat issues?

Then look no further!

Since ancient times, many cultures including the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks, have used the traditional natural therapy of ear candling on a spiritual level, to cleanse and purify the aura. Hopi ear candling techniques as we know them today, however, are believed to originate from the Native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona. Interestingly, Hopi means ‘peaceful people’ and this soothing and gentle therapy is well known for its calming and relaxing effects.

Ear candles are now widely used throughout the modern world for helping specific conditions and to still stressful minds.

The treatment involves placing an ear candle which is a hollow tube made of cotton that is coated with natural ingredients such as beeswax, honey and herbs – into the ear canal. Treating each ear separately, as the candle gently burns down it is believed to act like a ‘chimney’ creating a light vacuum effect. The flicker of the flame also creates

Vibrations that massage the eardrum.

The herbal vapours from the lit candle also swirl into the ear canal, helping to balance and soothe.

The treatment can be enjoyed purely for relaxation purposes, but the process is believed to be helpful for many problems and conditions, including the following:

Sinusitis,Tinnitus,Hayfever, Catarrh, vertigo headaches, Irritability and stress. It can help to loosen excessive ear wax, ear pressure due to flying.

As the candle burns down, many say it sounds like a fire softly crackling away which adds to the overall relaxing experience. The usual burn time of each candle is between ten and fifteen minutes. A pleasant feeling from both the candle and the reassurance of the therapist’s touch also makes this a deeply relaxing treatment.

Ear candling is a gentle non-invasive process but there are certain conditions that would prevent treatment.

These include:

Grommets, drains or tubes fitted in the ear, Cochlear implants, Perforated eardrum (or lack of eardrum) Ear or sinus inflammation or infection, Auricular cysts, Recent head or neck injury, Recent ear surgery, Any condition of the ear for which you are seeing your GP. If you are allergic to ingredients in the candle, High or low blood pressure

Epilepsy, First trimester of pregnancy.

Included in this treatment is a relaxing and therapeutic face, neck, shoulder and scalp massage.

Afterwards you’ll either be walking on air feeling refreshed and full of energy or so relaxed you could drift off to sleep. Which will you be?
