The ancient natural therapy of Ear candling was used by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. It is a relaxing, alternative therapy said to help with clearing toxins from the Eustachian, or auditory, tube within the ear. It may help with many different ear, nose and throat problems. Hopi means “peaceful people” and is well known for its calming effects too.
Many clients say they feel lighter around the ears and head, with pressures and stresses reduced together with a general sense of wellbeing. The process itself is extremely relaxing, soothing and pleasant: some ‘you’ time to recharge your batteries and prioritise your own wellbeing.
Because of the sensation of ease around the ear and head, and how it is thought to help remove earwax and pressure, Hopi ear candling can be beneficial for tinnitus, sinus problems, catarrh, hay fever, headaches, vertigo and excessive earwax. Stress and irritability can also be reduced. Sometimes the Eustachian tube may become blocked due to allergies or infection; although the candles do not actually suck wax out, they can facilitate removal of excess wax and toxins in a safe and natural way. But you don’t need a reason to have this relaxing and uplifting treatment.
This therapy is so relaxing you may just fall asleep and many clients do! A truly relaxing experience carried out at my private treatment room on a one-to-one basis, on a comfortable, warmed treatment couch. Organic cotton, hollow, beeswax candles are used with the recommended safety plate. The candle is lit, and the rising air and movement of the flame works very gently on your eardrum. You will feel warmth around your ear in a completely painless, pleasant and wellbeing-enhancing session. As all my relaxation sessions are completely tailored to you, your session may include Reiki and/or Indian head and face massage, whatever will most benefit you and your situation.
