Hopi Ear Candling
Whether you run a complementary health practice and are looking for a low-cost way to expand your existing treatment offering, or would simply like to treat family and friends, Hopi Ear Candling could be for you. This age-old therapy – also known as thermo-auricular therapy – is not only relaxing and rejuvenating, it’s also helpful for a variety of ear, nose and throat conditions.
Here’s an introductory guide to this peaceful and highly-popular treatment.
How Did It All Begin?
Since ancient times, many cultures including the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks, have used the traditional natural therapy of ear candling on a spiritual level, to purify and cleanse the aura. Hopi Ear Candling techniques as we know them today, however, are believed to originate from the Native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona. Interestingly, Hopi means ‘peaceful people’ and this gentle and soothing therapy is indeed well known for its calming and relaxing effects. Ear candles are now widely used throughout the modern world for helping specific conditions and to still stressful minds.
Who Can Benefit?
A Hopi Ear Candle treatment can be enjoyed purely for relaxation purposes, but the process is believed to be helpful for many problems and conditions, including the following:
- Hay fever
- Irritability and stress
- May help to loosen excessive ear wax
- Ear pressure due to flying
How Does It Work?
The treatment involves placing an ear candle – a hollow tube made of unbleached cotton that is coated with natural ingredients such as beeswax, honey and herbs – into the ear canal. Treating each ear separately, as the candle gently burns down it is believed to act like a ‘chimney’ creating a light vacuum effect. The flicker of the flame also creates vibrations that massage the eardrum. The herbal vapours from the lit candle also swirl into the ear canal, helping to soothe and balance.
