Hopi Ear Candling

Hopi Ear Candling is a unique and relaxing treatment. The candles can be used as a relaxing treatment to ease away the stresses of our Western culture and to address a number of problems relating to the ear, neck and face areas.

Fully dressed the client lies down on their side, with their head supported on a pillow so the auditory canal is vertical. The candle is then lit and the non-burning end is placed gently into the outer ear passage and is turned lightly to seal it in place. The candle then generates a pleasant crackling sound and a warm, comfortable feeling while it draws out the impurities from the ear. The process is repeated on the other ear. A facial massage is also carried out.

Hopi Ear Candling, or Thermo Auricular Therapy as it is also known, can be used to treat many conditions of the ear, nose and throat area. The candles work by vaporising their ingredients once lit, causing convectional airflow towards the first chamber of the ear. The candle creates a mild suction, which lets the vapours gently massage the eardrum and auditory canal. Once the candle is placed in the ear it forms a seal, which enables wax and other impurities to be drawn out of the ear.
