Hopi Ear Candling Treatment
Unlike conventional wax candles, a Hopi Ear Candle is actually a cotton tube, impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils.
The ear candle is inserted painlessly into the ear. The candles work using the process of convection. The burning of the candle helps to draw softer waxes and toxins from the ear. Some of these are then oxidised or turned into vapours and burnt. The warm air from the burning candle passes into the ear canal before being gently drawn back up to the top of the candle in a chimney effect.
The warm air containing the herbal extract vapours from the candle helps to soothe and invigorate the ear.The treatment is soothing and helpful for earache, ear noise and stress. A massage of the face and scalp is also included in the treatment.
Ear Candling is believed to help with stress, build-up of wax, tinnitus, sinusitis, rhinitis, vertigo, hay fever, tonsillitis, headaches and migraines, post flu where ears, nose and throat remain affected, pain when flying, participants of regular swimming and diving.
