Hopi Ear Candling

Ear candling flameHopi Ear Candling (also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy) is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears. It is used to offer calming benefits for many problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat. The therapy is widely used by doctors in Europe and America as an alternative to conventional treatments such as antibiotics, ear syringing and grommets.

How It Works

Ear candlesHopi Ear Candles are hollow tubes made of cotton, soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs and the process involves the candle being inserted just inside the ear canal. When lit, the candle creates a chimney effect, causing the warm air inside it to rise creating a vacuum at the bottom, stimulating the ear and facilitating the removal of excess wax and impurities. The rising air also gives the ear drum a gentle massage and helps to regulate ear pressure. During the treatment a little warmth is felt, and hissing and crackling noises are heard, with a little popping.
