Hopi Ear Candling has been around for centuries and is a very natural and safe way of helping ear, nose and throat conditions.
The process of Hopi Ear Candling involves placing a specially designed candle, usually made of bees wax and linen, being gently inserted into the ear. The candle is then lit and it generates a vacuum effect in the ear which will gently remove impurities and loosed compacted ear wax. This process is known as the “chimney effect”. The warmth and rising air gently gives the ear drum a massage helping to relieve pressure problems and relax you.
After both ears have been “candled” we then apply a gentle and very relaxing massage to the face to enhance the effects of the candling for optimum results.
