Hopi Ear Candling (Thermo-Auricular Therapy)
History traces the ear candling back to native Pueblo Indians of North America - the Hopi Indians of whom they get their name. Their knowledge of natural healing and deep spirtuality is rapidly gaining respect in the Western world. The ear candle is one of their many ancient therapies, used on both a physical healing and a spiritual basis.
The relaxing & calming effect eases cases of anxiety and stress. When lit, ear candles work by vaporising their ingredients and creating air flow towards the ear. It induces a revitalising heat upon the ear, which soothes, relieves and relaxes by the flame creating a negative pressure encouraging the contents of the ear to be drawn out. The client is protected from heat and falling debris from the candles by the practitioner so no debris falls on the client.
Traditionally the ear candles are used to cleanse and harmonise different energy fields of an individual. Today, ear candles have been used successfully for a number of problems relating to the head and ears, including:
Irritation of the ears or sinuses
