Ear Candling has been around for centuries and has been practised in most ancient civilisations. The therapy as we now know it was made famous by the Hopi Indians from North America. Hopi Ear Candle Therapy is an effective, non-invasive means of treating a variety of ear, nose and throat conditions. As the candles burn they create a vapour infused with therapeutic herbs and essential oils. The candles are hollow and tube shaped which creates a chimney effect, drawing away the vapour and any impurities from the ear. Gentle heat from the candle stimulates the blood and lymph circulation, boosting the immune system and regulating pressure within your sinuses.
A Hopi Ear treatment can be used as an alternative to syringing to remove excess wax from the ears. It is used as a means to equalise pressure in the ears in the cares of sinusitis, glue ear, colds, flu, catarrh, tonsillitis, headaches and migraine. The treatment also stimulates energy flow and can help reduce ringing in the ear.
