Hopi Ear Candles

Ear candles are an ancient and natural therapy which as been handed down through many civilizations.  Most notably in native America.  Although the ancient Greeks used candles, the technique was handed over to the western world thrugh the North American Hopi Indians. 
They are traditionally ued by the Shaman healers.

What are candles used for?

- Irritations, excessive or compacted wax in the ear

- Irritation in ears and sinuses

- Pressure in cases of sinuses, rhinitis, glue ear, colds, flue, headaches and migraine

- Energetic revitalization of hearing impairment

- Relaxing and calming effect in cases of stress

- Noises in the ears, ringing and tinnitus

What does the treatment consist of?

The treatment is carried out whilst lying down on your side.   The candle is put into the ear and allowed to burn down to the guiding line.  This process can take up to 10 minutes in each ear.  A crackling or poping noise may be heard whilst the process is in motion.  The relaxing fragrances of the essential oils soothe the client and relaxation begins.  The candles cause a chimney effect withith the skull .  This effect relieves blockages within the skull canals and ears . 

What is the candle made of?

The candle is made from linen and is usually sylindrical up to 12 inches in length with a hollow centre and no wick inside.  Wax does not run down the side as one would imagine.  The only effect is that the burning process causes some very fine ash to form at the top of the candle.  This usually disperses itself.

The main ingredients of the candles are Honey extracts, Pure beeswax, Sage, St John's Wort, Chamomile and Vitamin A.  Other oils may be used . If you have an alergy to any of these ingredients then this treatment is unsuitable for you.

A head massage is given at the end of the session.  This helps the vapours to do their job.  The head massage is also very relaxing.

The Hopi Candle treatment is a lovely gentle relaxing treatment with powerful effects.
