What Are Hopi Ear Candles?

Hopi Ear Candles (often shortened to Ear Candles) are hollow tubes traditionally made from organically grown flax and beeswax.  They provide a non-invasive treatment of the ears which are used to treat a variety of conditions.

How Do Hopi Ear Candles Work?

The hollow Ear Candle acts like a chimney.  When the candle is lit at the top, there is a mild suction which will draw out impurities from the ear into the lower section of the candle.  The rising air inside the ear then sets up a vibration which gently massages the eardrum.  This helps to regulate the pressures involved inside the ear.  The effect is sometimes described as a “lighter feeling” in the head and ear.

The flow of air creates a circulation of concentrated vapour;  this is soothing, calming and protects the irritated areas. The warmth of the flow stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic systems and increases immune defence and cleansing.  It also stimulates energy and reflex points.  The chimney effect inside the Ear Candle and the natural movement of the flame serve to gently massage the eardrum.  This has an effect of regulating ear pressure.

Whilst the candle is burning a pleasant warmth can be felt around the ear, head and neck area. After treatment the clients usually describe a soothing, liberating, light sensation in the ear and head area.

What Does A Hopi Ear Candle Treatment Involve?

Following a detailed medical history about any current ear or sinus problems and general state of health you will be asked to lie fully clothed on the treatment couch. One ear will be treated at a time as you lie either on your back or side.

The Hopi Ear Candle is lit at the top and the tapered end is gently placed into the ear, the Therapist’s hands are then placed lightly over the ear to steady the candle.  Each candle takes about 12-15 minutes to burn.

You may hear a slight crackling or fizzing noise as the Hopi Ear Candle burns and may also feel warmth around the ear.

Treatment is then repeated for the second ear and completed with a soothing Facial Massage.

Many people find the use of Hopi Ear Candles deeply relaxing and often fall asleep during treatment.

Treatment is recommend every 4-6 weeks for preventative and revitalizing purposes.  For chronic conditions such as sinusitis you may be asked to return in 2 weeks.
