HOPI EAR CANDLING 

SHORT HISTORY OF HOPI EAR CANDLES

Many people ask what is Hopi ear Candling and how can it help with the removal of ear wax particular compact ear wax that is usually syringed at the GP practice. Ear candling is a complementary therapry and  an ancient practice that has been used for centuries in many cultures throughout the world. In Mexico, cones are placed next to the ear to aid healing. Historical records in the Indian subcontinent also show that oils and wax-removing sticks have been used, along with smoke being blown into a person's ear.

A common treatment for earache in Iran was to smoke a pipe filed with various therapeutic herbs and blow the smoke into the ears to alleviate pain. Ear candling was also widely practiced in Italy, Spain and Eastern Europe, using matierals such as rolled tobacco leaves and waxed cloth or paper and these methods are still in use in some places.

Other names given to ear candling include coning, thermo or thermal auticular therapy and thermotherapy.

Natasha always uses candles produced by Bioson a recognised and trustworthy company. The ear candles are hollow tubes made from unbleached cotton or linen and hardened with beeswax. They are infused with honey and various herbs and/or essential oils. When alight they resemble candles, hence the name.

 

What happens during a treatment?

At the start of the treatment Natasha will check the client's ears to ensure there is no inflammation. The client will then lie on the couch either on their side or back, whichever is the most comfortable position for them. A protective towelling cloth with a slit in it will be placed over the ear and an ear candle will be gently inserted into the opening of the ear.

Once the treatment of the first ear is complete it will be repeated on the other ear.

During the treatment the client may experience gentle heat around the ear and a feeling of pressure being released in both or either the ears and sinuses. The client may also hear popping sounds and a pleasant crackling as the ingredients are burning. A treatment can last between 30 to 45 minutes.

 

After the treatment:

Once both ears have been worked on Natasha finishes off the treatment with a soothing scalp, neck, ears and face massage. This allows the client to rest for approximately 10 minutes after the candling.

At the end of the treatment the candles will be opened and further advice will be given.

It is advisable to avoid water sports and swimming for 24 hours after treatment. Clients will be asked to keep their ears warm for a few hours after the candling as they may feel slightly more sensitive to the environment.
