Hopi Ear Candling

What is Ear Candling & the Benefits;

Thermal Auricular Therapy is also known as Thermotherapy, Ear Coning and its most familiar name Hopi Ear Candling.

Hopi ear candling is a very relaxing treatment induced by the heat, it helps with removal of excess ear wax, infections and residuals of past ear infections.  Thermal Auricular Therapy is non-evasive and a very pleasant treatment which is a natural cleansing technique that helps to remove excess wax.

The candle is placed in the ear in a way as to ensure there is a tight seal between the ear and candle. With the elimination of oxygen the ingredients vaporise and are drawn down the outer ear canal.  This creates a small suction and the heat of the vapours inside the ear, gently massages the eardrum. This vibration causes the earwax to loosen.

Hopi Ear Candling is a Holistic Treatment so the benefits are on three levels Physical, Spiritual and Practical.

Physically helping to loosen compacted debris or ear wax, helping to release congestion.  The vibration it causes in the ear drum creates balance throughout the ear and body. There are therapeutic effects from the essential oils – anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and soothing.
