HOPI EAR CANDLING

A natural and relaxing therapy used traditionally by the Hopi Indians. This treatment is excellent for anyone who suffers from

  • sinusitis
  • headaches
  • migraines
  • head colds
  • glue ear
  • hay fever
  • excessive wax.

Hopi Ear Candles are hollow tubes made of cotton, soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs. When lit, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and creating a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating removal of excess wax and impurities.

The treatment is extremely soothing and relaxing, leaving you with a sense of well-being and reduced pressure in the ears or head. A little warmth is felt, and hissing and crackling noises are heard, with a little popping the is a very pleasant experience.

Use of the candles is contra-indicated if

  • The ear drum is perforated.
  • Grommets are in place.
  • The ear is infected.
  • The patient is allergic to any of the candle’s components.
