"Hopi ear candling is a gentle non-invasive treatment"
What is Hopi Ear Candling?
Hopi ear candling is an ancient, natural therapy which has been handed down through many civilisations from the Ancient Greeks to the Native Americans. It is believed to have come to the Western world from the Native American Hopi Indians of Northern Arizona. The candles themselves are still made on the basis of an old traditional formula.
Candles, what are they?
The candles that I use are Biosun. Made in Germany they are a high quality candle made with 100% natural ingredients which has earned a CE Mark. Made from Bee's wax, honey extract I currently have Honey, Sage, Camomile in stock. The candles themselves work on a chimney effect which softly massages the ear and helps to regulate pressure within the ear. The warmth from the candle can stimulate blood circulation, calm the mind and soothes the ears.
Hopi ear candling is a gentle, warming non-invasive treatment. A full consultation will be completed before treatment starts. Due to the candles being made of bee's wax please ensure you let me know if you have any allergies at the time of booking.
I will firstly take you through what will happen and show you the candles. The treatment involves the client laying on a massage couch. There is no need to undress for this treatment. Comfort is ensured at all times. A candle is placed gently just inside the ear. This should feel comfortable if not please tell your therapist. The candle is then allowed to burn for approximately 15 minutes. The client will be able to hear the candle burning. Most clients find this a soothing sound. The process is then repeated in the other ear. At no time will the candle be allowed to burn too close and health and safety will be observed at all times. Following the candles a gentle, soothing facial massage is applied. This helps to stimulate the energy points, increase circulation and helps to drain the sinuses. Any oil preferences can be chosen at the time of the appointment. After treatment the client will be able to see the candle opened and the contents inside explained. Please allow an hour for treatment.
Complete relaxation is the key
A full consultation will be undertaken before treatment can commence. If you are unsure as to wether Hopi ear candles is safe for you please check with your Doctor first. The candles I use are Biosun candles made from bee's wax, honey extract and essential oils.
