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 movement of the flame creates a vibration of air inside the candle, generating a massage-like effect on the ear canal.

This chimney effect draws any impurities to the surface where they can be removed. Most of the impurities are carried away through the candle, 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, 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 usually taking around 10 minutes per ear. Your therapist will be holding the candle in place throughout.
When both ears have been treated, a relaxing acupressure and drainage massage on the face and around the ears and sinuses will finish the treatment.

Contraindications to treatment:
*Perforation or lack of eardrum
*Grommets
*Recent ear surgery
*Auricular cysts
*Acute mastoiditis
*Ear tumour
*Any condition of the ear for which you are currently receiving medical treatment.
*Avoid administering ear drops or olive oil to the ears 3 days before treatment takes place
