Ear Candles

Ear candling in Loughborough

Hopi Ear Candling

Hopi Ear Candling (also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy) is a gentle, pleasant heat treatment of the ears, and a soothing alternative to ear syringing, which is helpful with:
  • Excessive wax of the ears
  • Irritation in the ears & sinuses
  • Sinusitis
  • Rhinitis
  • Glue Ear
  • Colds & Flu
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Noises in the ears/Tinnitus
  • Equalising the pressure in the head
 
The candles that I use are traditional Hopi Ear Candles that are made out of Beeswax, Honey extracts, Sage, St John’s Wart, Chamomile, and Organically Grown Flax which are formed into a hollow tubes. The candles are placed into the entrance of the ear and work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. Secretion flow is gently stimulated and the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits. Most of these are carried away through the candle ‘chimney’, although some of them can be found in condensed candle wax residue after removal from the ear, or could even work their way up to the surface 24-48 hours after.

Ear Candling Treatment

Whilst laying on your side on a massage table, the candle will be gently placed into the ear where it will be lit. I will hold it in a vertical position, whilst my hands keep the candle steady to prevent any ash falling onto you, (A cloth will be placed over your hair for safety). You will experience a pleasant crackling sound as the candle burns down. You will then be asked to turn over to treat the other side.
It is not advisable to have a treatment if:
  • Grommets are in place
  • You have a perforated ear drum
  • If there is an ear infection
  • An allergy to any of the candle ingredients
