Hopi Ear Candling

Ear Candling, also known as Thermo-Auricular Therapy is a non-invasive and relaxing treatment that uses a hollow, wickless candle made from flax steeped in honey, wax and soothing herbs.

When inserted a small way into the ear canal, the lit candle produces a mild suction effect, gently massaging the ear drum.  This effect can help equalise pressure in the inner and outer ear and sinus canals, and may be helpful for reducing the pain experienced when flying and with balance problems such as vertigo.

Ear Candling, inconjunction with applied gentle lymphatic drainage and acupressure techniques promotes circulation and relaxation in local tissues and can be beneficial in the management of sinus congestion and pain, headaches, migraines and as a maintanence approach for those who are prone to excessive ear wax.
