Hopi Ear Candles
Also known as Thermo-Auricular therapy, was originally practiced by the native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona. (Hopi means “peaceful people”) and uses hollow linen tubes (the candles) impregnated with beeswax and the herbs St Johns Wort and Sage to apply a safe and gentle heat source to the ear canal.
You will lie on the therapy couch comfortably lying on your side, the candle will be gently inserted at the ear entrance it does not go in far, approximately 1-1.5 cms and is lit, I will be holding it securely the entire time. Whilst the candle is burning you will hear a very soothing, gentle crackling and hissing sound, feel a sensation of warmth around your ear and head and may experience a feeling of pressure being released in the ears and sinuses. The candle takes between 8-10 mins to burn down then the area around the ear is massaged and the procedure repeated on the other side.
The effects being to safely draw out excessive ear wax from the ear canal, to regulate pressures and stimulate blood circulation in the ear, nose and throat passages.
It is therefore effective as an alternative to ear syringing and for relieving symptoms associated with sinusitis, rhinitis, colds and headache.
