Also known as Thermo Auricular Therapy, Hopi Ear Candling is a wonderfully relaxing, soothing and beneficial treatment. It can help with many conditions and problems associated with the ear, nose and throat area including:
- Ear ache
- Swimmers ear
- Glue ear
- Excessive ear wax
- Tinnitus Headache & Migraine
It is also an excellent preventative treatment before flying or diving and is suitable for children.
The candles are made from cotton or linen and contain beeswax, sage, St Johns Wort, Chamomile, vitamin A and honey extracts - all of which have healing properties.
As the candles burn, the ingredients are drawn down by gentle convection. This subtle movement has the effect of a gentle massage on the eardrum, plus the temperature in the ear canal increases slightly. This creates a change in pressure throughout the whole sinus system of the face, which can assist with drainage and help ease discomfort.
