Hopi Ear Candle Therapy
What is Hopi Ear Candle Therapy
Hopi Ear Candle Therapy or Ear candling is a method of removing earwax and toxins from a client's ears. The therapy has been used for centuries. Aztec, Egyptian, Asian and Greek civilisations are all known to have practised ear candling.
How does Hopi Ear Candle Therapy work?
A hollowed candle is placed in the canal of the ear and then lit. As the candle burns, its ingredients turn to vapour and the airflow creates a vibrational effect. Warmth, vibration and vapour massage the ear canal breaking down any blockages. Wax, toxins and impurities are then drawn out by suction from the heat and vacuum effect of the burning candle.
What does Hopi Ear Candle Therapy treatment involve?
General health and medical history will be noted and then the ears examined. After the assessment, if suitable the ear candles will be used.
After lying down on a treatment couch, the candle will be gently placed in the ear, held in place by the therapist, lit and then allowed to burn for 10-15 minutes. Relaxation music may be played along with sometimes aromatherapy oils or incense being burned in the treatment room to aid the relaxation process.
When the candle has burnt down sufficiently, the therapist will remove it and repeat the process with the other ear.
What can Hopi Ear Candle Therapy help?
Reduce stress and help with ear, nose and throat problems.
