Hopi Ear Candling
Hopi Ear Candle Therapy is an ear massaging function as well as softening any impurities. Many clients report a state of complete mental, physical and emotional relaxation, sometimes even falling asleep. Many often comment on feeling a soothing, liberating, light sensation in the ear and head areas.
Hopi Ear Candle therapy makes use of the simple laws of science. When the candle is inserted into the ear and lit the flame creates a vacuum drawing wax, candida, yeast, and other debris from the ear canal into the hollow candle. This vacuum is caused by the warmed air from the flame and colder air moving through its hollow centre. The movement and compression between the ear canal and the candle chamber generate air flow acting like a chimney. It is this that generates the "sucking" action.
It also stimulates energy points and reflex zones. The high energy light from the flame penetrates through the candle tunnel, transporting a vital spectral frequency inward to important energy centres. The cleansing fire carries negative vibrations away from the metabolic energy fields and harmonises the energy status. As well as offering real and marked benefits in a non-invasive manner for many ear, nose and throat problems, an ear candle treatment is a deeply relaxing, calming and soothing experience.
The candles used are made from organic cotton which is dipped in a solution of honey extracts, pure beeswax, beta-carotene and traditional crushed Indian herbs, known for their therapeutic qualities, including St. John's Wort, camomile and sage. The burning action infuses the herbs and essential oils into a vapour, which is drawn into the auditory canal. This performs a massaging function as well as softening any impurities.
How does it work?
With the patient lying down on their side in a comfortable position, the candle is gently inserted into the ear. Once the candle is lit the patient will experience a pleasant crackling noise, as the heat flow intensifies. The rising air through the column of the candle and gentle natural movement of the flame serve to gently massage the ear drum and promote secretion in the frontal and paranasal sinuses. This has an immediate subjective effect of regulating ear pressure. Users often describe a soothing, light sensation in the ear/head area. Increasingly, people are viewing ear candle treatment to be a normal part of their personal hygiene routine, (like cutting ones nails), that should be performed on a regular basis
