This is an ancient and natural therapy handed down by many civilisations. It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles, initially for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, but much later on a purely physical basis.
Hopi Ear Candling (also known Thermal Auricular Therapy) is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears, it is used to offer real and calming benefits for many problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat areas. A Hopi ear candle treatment is a deeply relaxing, calming and soothing experience.
Biosun ear candles are made from premium quality ingredients, including pesticide-free & untreated cotton, pure beeswax, honey extract, St John’s Wort, Sage and helps to restrict blood flow and mucous secretion which helps relive mental stress, anxiety, nervousness and excitability. Additionally the candle has Camomile, a herb which has anti-inflammatory and astringents properties.
What to expect from the treatment:
A typical treatment lasts around 30 to 45 minutes where the specially designed hollow Hopi candle is inserted just inside the ear canal. The Hopi candle is then lit and creates a ‘chimney’ effect where the warm smoke gives the ear drum a gentle massage and the rising air helps to regulate ear pressure. This is soothing, calming and protects the irritated areas.
The warm smoke gently softens and loosens wax in the ear, and the chimney effect encourages it to move closer to the ear opening. This treatment is not designed to completely remove wax, but in many cases, it can gently encourage the natural processes of the ear for up to 48 hours after.
During Thermal Auricular Therapy the client is fully clothed and lies comfortably on a massage table.
