About Hopi Ear Candling
Hopi Ear Candling (also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy), is a very pleasant, non-invasive nurturing treatment of the ears used to treat a variety of conditions. Ear candles are cotton/linen tubes, impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils which are painlessly inserted into one ear at a time. Once lit the candles work by vaporising their ingredients, causing convectional air flow towards the first chamber of the ear. The candle creates a mild suction allowing the vapours to gently massage the eardrum and auditory canal. When the candle is placed in the ear it forms a seal which is effective for extracting impurities and releasing soothing properties into the auricular system. You may experience a pleasant crackling sound as the candle burns and you may experience a warm comfortable feeling.
The Hopi ear candling treatment is followed by a lymphatic drainage massage around the lymph nodes of the head, neck, sinus and facial area and to finish a short foot reflexology routine to help ground the client.
