Hopi Ear Candles (Thermo-Auricular Therapy)
This natural treatment uses candles to relieve problems of the ears, nose, throat and sinuses. It decongests this area, draws out excess wax and regulates pressure in the inner ear which makes it an ideal treatment to have prior to flying. The treatment includes either a relaxing face and scalp massage or an acupressure massage to further decongest sinuses.
Hopi Ear Candles were first used by the Hopi Indians of North Arizona (hence the name) in healing rituals and ceremonies, to cleanse and harmonise energy fields and to drive out negative energies in addition to providing physical relief for problems relating to the ear, nose and throat.
The candles are hollow tubes made from organic and natural materials. You lie with your head to one side and a lighted candle is placed in your ear. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing impurities such as wax and dust to the surface and decongesting the tubes connecting ears, nose and throat which makes them ideal for those suffering from sinus blockages and excessive wax.
The lit candle is always well away from your head and there is no chance of you being burnt by the flame.This is a perfectly safe, painless and effective treatment to have. It is also extremely relaxing – as the candle burns you may experience gentle, reassuring warmth, and you will hear a pleasantly soft crackling sound many equating it to the sound of the sea on pebbles.
Hopi Ear Candles cannot be used if there is a perforated ear drum or infection in the ear.
