Hopi Ear Candles are an ancient healing technique used by the Hopi Native Indians centred in Arizona, in the South West of the United States. I include this technique with an Indian Head Massage for those people needing some ear treatments or those just interested in this wonderful ancient process.
How the candles are said to work:
The candle is lit, and gradually its ingredients vaporise and are drawn, by convection, down the hollow centre of the candle into the outer portion of the ear. The herbal vapours circulate within the external parts of the ear, soothing irritation, softening wax, stimulating blood supply, massaging the ear drum by gentle suction, helping the lymph glands and immune system to function efficiently.
Conditions for which the candles may be helpful:
The cylindrical candles are about 22cm long and 0.5cm in diameter, and are hollow. They each contain a filter which prevents residues from the candle from entering the ear.
Brilliant Ear Candles treatment, really helped and very relaxing, feels like someone turned up the volume.Nick Misselbrook - Bognor Regis
