Hopi Ear Candling (also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy) is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears used to help with a variety of conditions.
How do Hopi Ear Candles work?
The candles are made of natural ingredients of beeswax, honey extract and sage. The candles have a purely physical function. A light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the earcandle, generating a massage like effect on the eardrum. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is soothing and helpful for earache and headaches.
What are Hopi Ear Candles used for?
Hopi Ear Candles can help with excessive ear wax, sinus problems, stress, neuralgia, tinnitus, sinusitis and many other conditions.
Are there any contraindications?
You should not receive Hopi Ear Candling if you have had a perforated ear drum, have grommets in place or have an infected or inflamed ear.
