Hopi Ear Candles
Originating from the Hopi Indians of North America, the ear candle or chimney is made of a combination of woven cotton and pure beeswax which can then have herbal extracts added to boost its healing and cleansing properties.
What is involved?
The hollow tube is gently inserted into the ear canal, the therapist lights the end, rather like an incense stick, and holds it whilst the candle slowly burns to a measured cut off point.
The gentle vibration caused by the flickering flame massages the ear canal and eardrum, improving lymphatic draining and blood circulation whilst the chimney effect regulates the pressure in the ear helping to draw away impurities and soften and remove old solidified earwax.
Each ear is treated in turn, and it is followed by a relaxing light facial massage to boost the clearing action of the candles on the lymphatic system and to clear the sinuses.
This treatment lasts approximately 50 mins.
Hopi Candles can help relieve the following conditions:
- Blocked sinuses
- Headaches and migraine
- Glue ear
- Build-up of compacted earwax
- To unblock ears after flying or being at a high altitude
