Hopi Ear Candles
Hopi Ear Candles
Hopi Ear candles are named after the Native American tribe who first introduced this gentle therapy to the West. The Hopi nation is renowned for their extensive knowledge of healing and their spiritual lifestyle. The translation of the word Hopi is ‘peaceful ones’.
The ear candles are hollow tubes of pesticide free, untreated cotton, impregnated with pure beeswax, honey extract and traditional herbs such as sage, St.John’s Wort, camomile and pure essential oils.
The Hopi Ear candle treatment
The treatment is very gentle and relaxing and takes half to three quarters of an hour.
The candle is placed over the ear orifice and ignited at the far end. It is only allowed to burn down to the line marked on the outside of the make of candle used. A light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a vibration in the ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum and drawing out excess earwax. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses.
Each ear is treated in turn, and then the treatment is concluded with a head and face massage, which concentrates on the sinus areas.
What can a Hopi Ear candle treatment do for you?
The treatment is soothing and helpful for the alleviation of earache and headache, ear noise (tinnitus), stress and nervousness.
Note that it is not suitable for those with perforated eardrums, where grommets are fitted, or for anyone who has an allergy to any of the ingredients. You should also not receive a treatment if you have a current ear infection.
A treatment costs £30 and lasts around 45 minutes
