HOPI EAR CANDLING
Hopi ear candling, also known as Thermo Auricular Therapy, is an ancient form of therapy practised by many people on a world wide basis. Its name is taken from the Hopi Indians of North Arizona, USA and means 'peaceful people'.
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 is also removed during the treatment.
Hopi Ear Candling has many positive benefits and can help with a variety of conditions of the ear.
These include :
Tinnitus, Sinusitus, Glue Ear, Hay fever and rhinitus, Excessive ear wax, General hearing loss, Colds, Tension headaches, Travel sickness & Meniere's disease.
