What is Hopi ear candling?
Hopi Ear candling is an Indian relaxation treatment which aims to calm the mind and soothe the head and ears.
The ear candle is placed in the ear and lit creating a light suction action (chimney effect) in the ear and the movement of the flame creates a vibration of air which has a massage-like effect on the eardrum.
This engenders the client to relax and induces a balance of pressure within the ears. Both ears are treated during the treatment and each candle burns for between 8 and 12 minutes. Overall the treatment lasts for approximately forty five minutes and includes the draining of the sinuses and pressure points on the face.
Original Biosun Hopi candles are used which contain pure beeswax, honey extract, sage, St John’s Wort, Chamomile and essential oils.
