Hopi Ear Candling is a traditional therapy that was used by the Ancient Greeks, and popularised by the Hopi Indian tribe of the American south-west. Ear candles were first used traditionally by Shamen healers.
Ancient wall paintings show their importance in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies of the tribe. The candles are still made today on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians.
The process works by placing the ear candle, a cotton tube laced with various therapeutic oils and beeswax into the ear and lighting the end.
It provides a light suction almost like a chimney, drawing out any impurities to the surface where they can be removed.
The flames movement creates vibrations within the air flow that gently massages the ear drum. The warmth gently massages and clear the inner ear and sinuses. The soothing effect creates relaxation and a general feeling of wellbeing.
This type of session is the perfect for holistically benefiting people’s lives. Hopi Candles not only treat the body physically, but also the mind and spirit.
The session looks at all aspects of the individual’s life including their occupation and diet, aiming to address the actual problem rather than just treating the symptoms.
Hopi Ear Candles are suitable for all types of clients with a range of ailments whether it is just a case of blocked or wax filled ears, sleeping problems, inner ear imbalances, sinusitis or even those who are suffering from stress and want to try something new.
The sessions last between 45 minutes to an hour with the candle making a crackling sound as it burns down. It creates a gentle warmth within the ear which can be very relaxing.
