Hopi Ear Candling

What is Hopi Ear Candling?

Hopi Ear Candling is a soothing and non-invasive treatment that can make a significant contribution to overall health in the upper body.   The treatment can physically remove wax and debris from the ears and rebalance ear pressure, open vital energy pathways in the ears and stimulate the head and ear lymphatic nodes.  Many have also found it to be a remarkably calming treatment that can promote deep relaxation and improved sleep.

Although they are called 'candles', the candles used in the treatment are not like usual candles, are not made from wax and in reality bear almost no resemblance to ordinary candles at all.  And although anyone can obtain Hopi ear candles, they should always be administered by a trained practitioner.

I have carefully selected a particular manufacturer of specialist Hopi candles, made from all natural ingredients including cotton, bees wax, St Johns Wort, sage, chamomile and other essential oils that meet EU safety standards.

What Should I Expect?

At your first treatment, I will conduct a personal consultation and agree a treatment plan with you.  I will also explain how ear candling works and if you would like me to, explain some of benefits you might hope for, along with specific aftercare advice you should follow to maximise the effects of the treatment.

The treatment focuses on the ears, head and face, so I will ask you to position yourself on the massage couch, fully clothed.  Once you are warm and comfortable, I will place a candle in one ear, check with you it is snug in the ear canal and then begin the treatment.  The candle will burn for approx. 8 to 12 minutes.  During the treatment, you may notice a crackling noise and a slight pulling sensation in your ear as the candle draws material from your ear.  After candling both ears, I will then finish the treatment with a relaxing face massage to further drain the sinuses.

After treatment, I recommend that you drink plenty of water, avoid sitting in a draft and avoid going swimming or diving in the next 24 to 48 hours.
