Hopi Ear Candles

Hopi Ear Candles (some times also referred to as Thermo-auricular therapy) are a hollow woven cotton tube made using only natural ingredients with extracts of honey, pure beeswax and traditional Indian herbs.

For a treatment the client is made to feel comfortable lying on a couch; the candle is then lit and placed gently over the entrance to the auditory canal. During the burning process the ear feels pleasantly warm. The treatment is finished of with a pressure point face massage.

Recipients of this treatment can sometimes fall asleep. The whole process is relaxing and non-invasive. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities/wax to the surface where they are gently removed.

It is always important to do both ears, to satisfy the principle of balance.

Hopi Ear Candles are a gentle, non invasive treatment best suited to help alleviate:

* Excessive or compacted wax

* Pressure regulation in cases of headache and migraine.

* Irritations in the ears or sinuses.

* Sinusitis, 'Glue ear' and Rhinitus.

* Noises in the ear (i.e. Tinnitus)

* Ear problems related to swimming, diving and water.

* Relaxation and stress relief.

A treatment lasts approx 45 minutes.
