Hopi Ear Candles
The use of ear candling (also called thermoauricular therapy) is evident in many cultures from around the world and has been used as a remedy since ancient times.
Ear candles are completely natural products which are carefully hand crafted, with each candle constructed from organically grown flax, honey extracts, beeswax and therapeutic herbs, including Chamomile, Sage and St John’s Wort.
The candles are approximately 20cm long, hollow tubes, one end of which is gently inserted into the opening of the ear canal whilst the other end is lit. The movement of the flame creates a vibration of air within the candle, helping to generate a massage-like effect on the eardrum.
The recipient experiences a pleasant feeling of warmth in the ear, together with a balancing of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. The entire process is extremely relaxing and soothing and has traditionally been used for earache, blocked sinuses, headache, ear noise, and everyday stresses and nervousness.
Treatment is always preceded by an examination of the ears using an otoscope. Ear candling is a safe, simple treatment which is suitable for almost everyone. For further information, please contact the Clinic for a confidential chat about your health needs.
