Hopi Ear Candling therapy has been around for thousands of years.
Thought to have originated from the ancient Egyptians and Greek civilisations, they used this natural therapy to treat many of their ails.
Ear Candling as we know today is largely thanks to the Native American Hopi Indian Tribe. Hopi means ‘Peaceful People’ whom used the candles for their soothing and relaxing effect, as well as the their ability to support specific ailments including:
- Hay Fever
- Irritability and stress
- Excessive ear wax
- Ear pressure equalisation
- Recovery from Labryintitius
Once the candle is placed inside the ear canal and lit, it creates a vacuum, or chimney like effect. The flickering of the flame create a gentle vibration that helps move any stubborn material.
The treatment will last around 30 minutes, and will include a simple pressure point massage afterwards.
