HOPI EAR CANDLES
Like most complimentary therapies, Hopi ear candling has a very long history, it is a very ancient and natural therapy.
Hopi means people of peace, and they were the first Pueblo Indians to settle on the North American continent.
It is also known candling was used by the Ancient Greeks for cleansing and purifying the ear and healing on a spiritual level.
Many people from mediterranean and Latin American countries can remember receiving ear candling as young children
The candles work by creating heat which fill the ear canal, and sinuses with the healing vapour from the essential oils which are impregnated into the candles - helping to soothe and draw toxins from the ears, nasal passages and sinuses, creating space and the ability to breathe easier.
This is an extremely relaxing treatment and after candeling a massage of the face and head is included as part of the treatment, the massage continues to help drainage of the sinuses, and helps to relax you on a deeper level.
There is also the option to have candling done without the facial massage if preferred.
Hopi ear candles are still made today, they are made from Organically grown flax, 100%beeswax, Healing honey extracts, and beta carotene. They are also available in a variety of aromas from various essential oils. Such as St Johns wort, sage and chamomile, Lavendar, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass etc.
HOPI CANDLES MAY HELP YOU BENEFIT IF YOU SUFFER FROM ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
*Excess ear wax

*Colds and flu symptoms
*Allergies including hayfever
*Sinusitis and nasal rhinitis
*Headaches and migraines

When you arrive for your appointment a medical questionnaire will be completed and if there are no contraindications to the therapy you will be asked to lie on your side on a treatment couch. A towel will be used to cover your hair and a guard placed over the candle at the end closer to your ear. The candle will be inserted into your ear ensuring a good seal and the candle lit. It can take around 10 minutes to burn in each ear(sometimes a little more or a little less, depending on the health of your ears and sinuses etc) . Once both sides have had candling, you will be asked to lie on your back for the facial massage to help with sinus drainage.
