Hopi Ear Candling
Ear candling is a relaxing therapy that helps remove wax, colds and sinus problems (as an alternative to syringing), clears the mind and hearing. The candles are hollow tubes made from cotton or linen impregnated with honey and herbs, including St John’s Wort, Sage, and Chamomile. They are not wax candles, so do not fear normal candle wax melting in your ear.
Hopi Candles have a light suction action as the flame burns and pulls sinus air and impurities upwards through the ears into the candle. The movement of the flame creates a vibration of air that massages the eardrum. The herbs have an anti-inflammatory and soothing effect on the mind.
I retail top quality Biosun and Herbacone Professional Hopi Ear Candles if you prefer spending an ear candling session with a friend back at home. After many years of experience, I have chosen these candles to retail and to use in the suite because each candle lasts for approximately 15 mins in each ear and they are of excellent quality with filters. Beware the cheaper, smokier, flimsy or fast burning candles that last only 8-10 minutes that some therapists use!
Both ears can be treated in 30 minutes. Extended treatments continue with a Facial and Scalp Massage to improve sinus drainage towards the ears and enhance the therapeutic effects on the lymphatic drainage, and head. Gemstones can be included at no extra charge. Or try a combination with a Neals Yard Remedies Organic Facial Scrub, Reiki, Shirodhara or a full Neals Yard Remedies Organic Facial.
