Hopi Ear Candling
This is an ancient treatment that has been used for thousands of years and today continues to be widely used by practitioners to treat a range of issues. On the surface of it, Hopi ear candles regulate ear pressure and loosen and remove excess wax from the ear canal, yet by doing so, they are able to effectively treat a number of conditions such as headaches / migraines, sinusitis, tinnitus and allergic rhinitis.
The candling treatment helps to re – balance the pressure in and around the eardrum, soothing and calming many symptoms. The process of Hopi candling involves a specially designed hollow candle being inserted just inside the ear canal. The candle is then lit and the suction that is formed draws the impurities from within the ear. This process is known as ‘the chimney effect’. The rising air gives the ear drum a gentle massage and also helps to regulate ear pressure. A small amount of ear wax may also be removed during the treatment.
