Hopi Ear Candling

What is Hopi Ear Candling? Ear candles are an ancient and natural therapy, which have been used for many years. The candle is a hollow tube made out of cotton flax stiffened with beeswax, herbs and pure essential oils.

Ear candles have a purely physical function. A light suction action chimney effect and the movement of the flame creates a vibration of air in the ear candle, creating a feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses generating a massage like effect on the eardrum.

  • Relaxing and calming effect in the case of stress.

What Happens During a Treatment? The treatment involves first checking the general condition of the ear and the health of the tympanic membrane with the aid of an otoscope.

The client then lies on a couch; a lit candle is then gently placed into the auditory canal, which burns down taking 12 -15 minutes. This is then repeated on the other ear followed by a face and shoulder massage to aid the removal of toxins through the lymph system and to increase the flow of fresh blood to the area. The treatment lasts 50 – 60 minutes.
