Hopi Ear Candles

Ear candling uses sound frequency vibration to balance pressure in the head, to remove crystallised wax from the inner ear and to drain mucus from the sinuses. It is the sound of the flame that vibrates the small bones of the inner ear creating a massaging effect.

About ear candling

The experience of ear candling evokes a primal fascination with warmth and light. Since ancient times it has been used by many cultures - from Greece to Siberia to Asia to the Americas - as an effective natural therapy.

How does ear candling work?

Ear candling uses sound frequency vibration to balance pressure in the head, to remove crystallised wax from the inner ear and to drain mucus from the sinuses. It is the sound of the flame that vibrates the small bones of the inner ear creating a massaging effect. It permeates further into the Eustachian tube and sinuses helping soften and break up any wax and dissolving mucus. The warmth and the vibration generated by the burning candle stimulates the lymphatic system increasing blood flow in the area and easily removing mucus. In this way, natural balance is restored and the body is able to heal itself.

What is involved in the treatment?

The recipient lies on their side with the area around the ear protected by a special covering. The candles I use are thin, hollow, linen tubes made from organically-grown flax. These are approximately five inches long and impregnated with beeswax, honey and herbs (often sage). At the base of each candle is a plastic filter to collect debris from the ear. Once the candling of both ears is completed, I conclude the treatment with some acupressure work on the scalp and the face. This is combined with elements of facial reflexology.

What are the benefits of ear candling?

  • Beneficial for earache, headache, tinnitus, sinusitis, stress
  • Removes particles of wax and other impurities affecting your hearing or causing vertigo
  • Reduces the effects of jet lag
  • Spontaneously assists nasal breathing and an improved sense of smell
  • Induces a blissful sense of relaxation, a feeling of joy and a deep sense of security

This unique type of reflexology works on the same principle as classic foot reflexology but the techniques that make this such a powerful healing process also deliver an immediate beautifying effect. Facial Reflexology is actually two treatments in one.
