Hopi Ear Candling is a beneficial and relaxing treatment that has been around for a long time originating from the Hopi Indian Tribes of North American renowned for their extensive knowledge of healing and deep spirituality.
The 'candles' are hollow tubes made in the traditional Hopi Indian way. Organically grown woven cotton is impregnated with honey extracts, essential oil of sage, 100% pure beeswax, crushed traditional Indian medicinal herbs (mainly sage and camomile).
The treatment can be used to help such ailments as Headaches, migraine, sinusitis and rhinitis.
It is extremely relaxing and can help many ear, nose and throat problems, including glue ear and tinnitus.
During the treatment a lit candle is placed gently in the entrance to the auditory canal, whilst the client is lying down. The candle burns with a small flame, the heat from which produces a mild suction by which debris can be drawn out of the ear. The vapours produced as the candle burns down circulate in the ear canal having anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-bacterial properties.
The mild heat stimulates the blood and lymph circulation which boosts the immune system, and the vibration of the rising air column through the natural movement of the flame gently massages the eardrum. Both ears are always treated to ensure balance is maintained. After both ears have been treated the clients receives a relaxing face, ear and head massage.
