Hopi ear is a natural therapy treatment. It has been used since ancient times and is used by many cultures.
Hopi Ear is a gentle treatment for the ears.
The ear candles are made from 100% pure beeswax and cotton.
How do they work
Hopi candles are hollow tubes coated in beeswax, when the end is lit a chimney effect is created and this when placed in the ear will create a suction action drawing out impurities from the ear canal
The process can help soothe earache, headaches, asthma, colds, stress.
It also can help towards improved sense of smell and nasal breathing. It can assist with the body’s natural healing.
Afterwards, most people report a sense of relaxation and pleasurable contentment. It is also claimed to be helpful for a number of ear-related ailments from painful earache to sore throats and dizziness, balance and vertigo.
Manufacturers of ear candles, stress that they do not claim that the candles can clear out hardened wax, but rather that the vapour and the warmth of the candle and the vibration help to soften and break down the wax which is subsequently flushed away the through the lymphatic system. ‘The treatment is therefore detoxifying,’ they say, and is still working in the body up to 48 hours after’.
During your treatment, while you lie on your side, special hollow cones are used made of natural fibres, beeswax and essential oils. All candles have a safety filter. The end of the candle is then carefully inserted into the external ear canal. The top of the candle is then lit, and allowed to burn.
As it burns, the cone's ingredients turn to vapour and the airflow creates a vibrational effect. Warmth, vibration and vapour massage the ear canal, it is claimed, and break down any blockages; wax, toxins and other debris are then drawn by gentle suction (the chimney effect) of the burning cone.
What To Expect
At your first appointment, you will normally be asked questions about your general health including any recent ear problems and any medication you may be takinghould be deferred until the course of tablets has finished.
If you have any infections of the ear or perforated ear drum or grommets etc then it will not be possible for you to have the treatment.
You will be asked to lie on your side with one ear uppermost; the candle is placed over the ear orifice and ignited. As the cone burns, you will experience pressure changes in your ear and may hear a crackling or popping sound. You may also feel a drawing or massaging sensation.
It is only allowed to burn to within 3-4 inches of the end of the candle. As it burns it produces a gentle local heat. The warm air combined with the oil and herbs are believed to soften the wax and draw it into the base of the candle.
The treatment is then repeated on the other ear.
Afterwards, you will receive a gentle relaxing mini facial massage.
