Hopi Ear Candling is a non invasive therapy. It has been used by many cultures as an effective, natural therapy since ancient times. I am an accredited Ear Candler a member of the Thermo Auricular Therapy Association and only use original Biosun Hopi Ear Candles. These are made using a traditional recipe and the finest regularly tested ingredients. When lit the candle generates a gentle heat which produces a light suction action. This is known as the chimney principal, and works by drawing impurities gently to the surface, where they can be removed. None of the candle residue actually goes into the ear.
A full consultation is taken before the treatment begins. Clients are remained fully clothed for this treatment, lying on their side so the auditory canal is vertical, with their head supported by a pillow, and you will be covered by a blanket. The non-burning end of the candle is then placed gently into the outer ear passage and is turned lightly to seal it in place. The candle is then lit and placed back into the ear it generates a pleasant crackling sound and a warm comfortable feeling, while it draws out impurities. An ear massage is then given to the ear, before the process is repeated again on the other ear.
A scalp, face massage is given afterwards (50 Min treatment only, please note make up is to be removed) concentrating on the sinus areas, grapeseed oil is used on the face. This treatment may help to aid hearing problems and relieve pressure in the head, and sinuses areas. The treatment is suitable for all ages.
The benefits of Hopi Ear Candling may include: Relief from sinus problems, headaches, hay fever. Softening and loosing of compacted earwax, Relaxation and stress relief. Many clients find the treatment relaxing.
Hopi Ear candles should not be used if there is any inflammation or infection in the ear and are not suitable for people who have had recent ear surgery or those with grommets or tubes, perforated ear drums, or allergies to any of the products in the candle. Anyone who is receiving medical treatment for any ear condition should always consult with their doctor first. Some clients may experience headaches or light popping in the ears after treatment.
