Hopi Ear Candling
opi Ear Candling is an extremely relaxing treatment, that is safe for children, adults and during pregnancy. The name given to the treatment originated from a Native American Indian tribe called the Hopi’s (meaning ‘peaceful people’).
The use of these type of candles can help to support imbalances within the ear, nose, throat and chest areas including build up of wax, Tinnitus (ringing in the ears), Hearing Difficulties and Sinus problems as well as Sore Throats, Colds/ Flu, Headaches & Migraines.
The Hopi Ear Candles themselves are not like a traditional candle, but a hollow cotton tube soaked in Beeswax, Sage, St John’s Wort, Chamomile & Honey.
When the Candle is lit, the non-burning end is placed gently into the outer ear passage and generates a gentle heat that produces a light suction action and draws impurities gently to the surface. The candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and creating a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating removal of excess wax and impurities. Most deposits evaporate and are carried away through the candle ‘chimney’ combined with a lymphatic facial massage included in the treatment to encourage further drainage.
This treatment can be enhanced when combined with any form of massage offered at The Healing Heart.
