Treatments : Hopi Ear Candling

What is Hopi Ear Candling?

Thermal Auricular Therapy (also known as Hopi Ear Candles) is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears, used to treat a variety of conditions.

The ear candles induce a revitalising heat upon the head and ears, which soothes, relieves and relaxes.

Hopi Ear Candles can help with:

  • Tinnitus
  • Compacted ear wax and glue ear
  • Sore throats and hay fever
  • Headache and migraine
  • Rhinitis and sinusitis
  • Catarrh and asthma
  • Stimulation of blood and energy flow
  • Regulation of pressure in ears and head
  • Relaxation in conditions of anxiety and stress
  • Stimulation of lymphatic system and metabolism

Hopi Ear Candles

Before a treatment starts, an initial consultation is given to ensure the treatment is right for my client. The treatment starts with a relaxing facial massage. My client is then asked to lay their head onto one side where I will then gently insert the first candle to the ear then followed by with the second candle to the other ear.

The candles are made from the natural ingredients of beeswax, honey extracts, sage, St Johns Wort, chamomile, beta-carotene and organically grown flax. A constant high quality is ensured. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. They equalise the pressure in the head and ears, making them suitable for most conditions. Secretion flow is gently stimulated and the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits. Most of these are carried away through the candle “chimney”, although some of them can be found in the condensed candle wax residue after removal from the ear, or could even work their way up to the surface 24-48 hours after.

The number of treatments depends on how long the candle takes to burn down. Each treatment takes approximately 45 – 60 minutes and is very relaxing. It is advisable to put a few drops of warm olive oil in each ear for three days before treatment as this will help to soften the wax which will make it easier to remove. On the day of the treatment, you will be advised to remove all makeup and earrings.

Remember, if in doubt, always contact your GP.
