What happens during a Hopi Ear Candling Treatment?
Hopi Ear Candling is a gentle, relaxing and enjoyable treatment that helps with many ear, nose and throat related conditions.
While you are lying on your side, a hopi ear candle is lighted and gently placed into your ear. It is held in place by the therapist as it burns down slowly, taking about ten minutes.
After both candles have been used, there is a fifteen minutes pressure point massage over the face and scalp to further help clear sinuses and leave you feeling relaxed and calm.
How does it work?
Heating up the air in the tube makes the air rise and create a mild suction action which helps to loosen compacted wax and equalise pressures in the sinuses. Vaporising beeswax and other ingredients spiral downwards into the ear canal which massages the eardrum.
As the ear, nose, sinuses and throat are all connected, this regulates and balances pressures in the ear as well as the whole upper respiratory tract.
What does it feel like?
The warmth and smell of the vaporising ingredients combine to create a holistic experience which is soothing and calming. It can lift depression, lower stress hormones and blood pressure. It can have a significant effect on balancing the mind and body and give feelings of wellbeing.
How much does it cost.
The treatment costs £45 including the facial drainage massage and lasts about 50 minutes.
What is a hopi ear candle?
The term is a misnomer as it is not a candle at all but a hollow tube made from organic, unbleached cotton. This is impregnated with pure beeswax, honey, herbs such as sage, St. John’s wort and camomile and essential oils.
Beeswax is anti-septic and anti-inflammatory and fights infection. Melted and infused with honey and herbs, it has hydrating qualities which help to soften and loosen compacted earwax. The herbs are chosen for their benefit to the ear, nose and throat area and their ability to stimulate the immune system.
