Hopi Ear Candling is an ancient and natural therapy handed down by many civilisations. It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles, initially probably for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis. Ear candling (also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy) is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears, it is used to offer real and calming benefits for many problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat areas. The therapy is widely used by doctors in Europe and America as an alternative to conventional treatments such as antibiotics, ear syringing and grommets. An ear candle treatment is a deeply relaxing, calming and soothing experience. The treatment can be used to help such ailments as headaches, migraine, sinusitis, rhinitis, excessive ear wax and stress.
The treatment involves a specially designed hollow candle being lit & inserted just inside the ear canal, whilst the client is lying down. The candle burns with a small flame, the heat 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. Often referred to as the ‘chimney’ effect. The rising air gives the ear drum a gentle massage and helps to regulate ear pressure.
The mild heat stimulates the blood and lymph circulation which boosts the immune system.After treatment, clients will receive a relaxing face, ear and head massage. A pleasant feeling of warmth and re balancing ensure this is a deeply relaxing and clearing treatment.
