Hopi Ear Candles
How do Hopi Ear Candles work?
The candles are made from the natural ingredients of beeswax, honey extracts, sage, St Johns Wort, chamomile, beta-carotene and organically grown flax. A constant high quality is ensured. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. They equalise the pressure in the head and ears, making them suitable for most conditions. Secretion flow is gently stimulated and the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits. Most of these are carried away through the candle "chimney", although some of them can be found in the condensed candle wax residue after removal from the ear, or could even work their way up to the surface 24-48 hours after.
What are Hopi Ear Candles used for?
Though results may vary from patient to patient, some of my clients have reported Hopi Candles to be helpful with:
- Excessive or compacted wax in the ears
- Irritation in ears and sinuses
- Pressure regulation in cases of : sinusitis / rhinitis / glue ear / colds / flu / headaches / migraine
- Stimulation of local and reflex energy flow
- Energetic revitalisation in cases of hearing impairment
- Relaxing and calming effect in cases of stress
- Noises in the ears, ringing, tinnitus
Remember, if in doubt, always contact your GP
Are there any side effects?
No contradications are known to date but as a precaution, it is advisable not to use Hopi candles:
- If grommets are in place
- If there is inflammation or infection
- In the event of an allergic reaction to the contents.
However, most clients find the treatment relaxing and regularly describe a "slight relieved feeling" in the ears and head but also a relaxing and calming effect on the whole system.
Where long-term conditions are being treated, the client sometimes experiences slight headaches and occasional popping shortly after the treatment.
What a typical Treatment Session entails
You are asked to lie comfortably and listen to relaxing music. The candle is then gently placed into the auditory canal, where it is lit. I hold it in a vertical position, my hands keeping the candle steady and preventing any ash falling on to you. You will experience a pleasant crackling sound as the candle burns and a warm comfortable feeling. As the candle burns down, the residue ash (if it falls) will just turn to dust. The candle is then taken away while you lie there for a few moments before turning over to treat the other ear. Most clients find the whole experience very relaxing. Some fall asleep during treatment.
