History

This is an ancient and natural therapy. It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles for cleansing, purifying and healing on a physical and spiritual basis. The practice reached the modern world via the Native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona.

How do Hopi Ear Candles work?

The candles are made from natural ingredients of beeswax, honey, sage, st.johns wort, chamomile and flax. The candles work on a chimney principle. The movement of the flame creates a vibration of air in the candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum.

This effect draws any impurities to the surface where they can be removed. Most of the impurities are carried away through the candle chimney, although some can be found in the condensed candle wax residue after removal from the ear.

The result of the treatment is often described as a soothing, pressure and pain relieving sensation in the ear and the head. Treatment can also bring about an improved sense of smell and easier breathing.

What does the treatment consist of?

You will be asked to lie comfortably on your side while listening to relaxing music. The candle is then gently placed into the ear where it is lit. You will experience a pleasant crackling sound as the candle burns down. The candle is removed and you will be asked to turn onto your other side where a new candle will be placed into the ear.

When both ears have been treated, a relaxing drainage massage around the ears and sinuses will finish the treatment. Most clients will find the whole experience very relaxing.
