Hopi Ear Candling

Hopi Ear Candling
Hopi Ear Candling is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears, used to treat a variety of conditions. It is an ancient and natural therapy handed down by many civilisations. It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles, initially probably for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual level, but much later on a purely physical basis. However, the practice reached the modern world via the native American Hopi of North Arizona. Ear candles were used traditionally by shamen healers. Ancient wall paintings show their importance in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies of the tribe. The candles are still made today on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians.

The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. They mayequalise the pressure in the head and ears, making them suitable for most conditions. Secretion flow is gently stimulated and the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits. Most of these are carried away through the candle;, although some of them can be found in the condensed candle wax residue after removal from the ear, or could even work their way up to the surface 24-48 hours after.

How it Works and where it can be useful

Though results may vary from patient to patient, people have reported Hopi Candles to be helpful with:
  • Excessive or compacted wax in the ears
  • Irritation in ears and sinuses
  • Pressure regulation in cases of : sinusitis / rhinitis / glue ear / colds / flu / headaches / migraine
  • Relaxing and calming effect in cases of stress
  • Headache and migraine
  • Noises in the ears, ringing, tinnitus
  • What to Expect during a Hopi Ear Candling Treatment

    You are asked to lie comfortably and can choose to listen to relaxing music. The candle is then placed into the auditory canal, where it is lit. The therapist holds it in a vertical position. You will experience a gentle crackling sound as the candle burns. As the candle burns down, the residue ash will just turn to dust. The candle is then taken away while you lie there for a few moments before turning over to treat the other ear. A gentle massage is normally performed after the treatment. Most clients find the whole experience very relaxing. Some fall asleep during treatment.
