Ear Candling

Ear candling is a natural, non-invasive, relaxing treatment.

The Hopi ear candle is not like a candle as we know it. It is actually a hollow tube made out of cotton flax. To stiffen the flax, it has been impregnated with an extract of organic honey, beeswax and herbal oils, namely sage, St. John's wort and chamomile. These have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and promote a relaxing and restorative effect on the nervous system.

The client lies on their side, and the 'candle' is lit and placed in the ear. It is held by the therapist throughout the treatment. It creates a warm, gentle, suction action, generating a massaging effect which is said to draw out impurities from the ear. It balances pressure within the ears, forehead and sinuses. It can bring beneficial relief to earache, an accumulation of wax, headaches, sinusitis, tinnitus, stress, neuralgia, pressure problems, swimmer’s ear, vertigo, dizziness and many other problems.
