Otherwise known as Thermo-auricular Therapy, the original source of the treatment technique seems to be from medical ceremonies performed by native American Indian tribes called The Hopis (‘meaning peaceful people’).
What are Hopi Ear Candles?
Quite different from conventional wax candles, a Hopi ear candle is actually a cotton tube, impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils that is painlessly inserted into the ear. The candles are made from natural ingredients that include Sage, St. John’s Wort, Camomile and Beta-carotene.
- Draw out impurities
- Relieve pressure in the head and sinuses
- Aid hearing problems
The Treatment Session
Fully dressed the client lies down on their side, with their head supported on a pillow so the auditory canal is vertical. The candle is then lit and the non-burning end is placed gently into the outer ear passage and is turned lightly to seal it in place. Burning times vary from person to person, the candle make a gentle popping and hissing sound in your ear – a bit like frying bacon… after the second candle has completed I finish the treatment with a face/head massage.
Up to an hour (includes massage of the face/head area).
