Hopi ear candling involves inserting a hopi ear candle into the opening of the ear with you laying on your side on a treatment couch supported by pillows. Hopi Ear Candling or (also known as Thermo-Auricular Therapy) are hollow tubes made of cotton, soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs. When lit, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and it creates a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating removal of excess wax and impurities.
You will experience a pleasant crackling sound which is akin to being near an open fire and a gentle warmth from the candle burning. This can help loosen ear wax from the ear canal. When the ear candling is complete the base of the candle is opened to normally reveal some beeswax and herbal powder which is part of the filter. No ear wax is removed from the ear during the treatment but you may find a slight discharge of wax coming away naturally from the ear post treatment.
After the ear candling has been performed on both ears you will lye on your back so a facial drainage massage can enhance the positive effects of the ear candling. The massage can help promote drainage of fluids, reduce tension in the sinuses and temples. Also Improve circulation of blood, reduce dark circles around the eyes and reduce any swelling in the sinuses.
I use genuine Hopi Ear Candles which are premium quality, Pesticide Free, unbleached woven cotton with pure beeswax and are 100% Organic. The candles are filtered to prevent any back-flow returning to the ear candle.
