Hopi Ear Candles Explained
Our Hopi Ear Candles treatment, otherwise known as Thermal Auricular Therapy, is a soothing and non-invasive treatment for the ears that helps ease many persistent symptoms including:
- Ear Wax buildup
- Swimmers Ear
This treatment can also have a calming effect for those suffering from stress or anxiousness.
How do Hopi Ear Candles Work?
Hopi Ear Candles are made from a number of natural ingredients such as beeswax, sage, honey extracts, St Johns Wort, chamomile and organically grown flax. The candles draw out impurities to the ear surface, where they can be gently removed. Most impurities are drawn through the candle ‘chimney’ although some collate within the candle residue wax or could even work their way to the ear surface up to 48 hours after the treatment.
The Revive Hopi Ear Candle Treatment
Once you are lying comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms, with soothing meditation music playing quietly in the background, the treatment begins. Whilst lying on your side a Hopi Ear Candle is carefully placed into the auditory canal and lit. The candle is held in place and care is taken to ensure no ash falls onto you. As the candle starts to burn and draw out impurities, you may hear a gently crackling or popping noise and experience a warm comforting feeling. Once the first candle expires we ask you to turn over and we repeat the process in the other ear. Often the time it takes for the candle to do its work depends on the impurities within the ear and no two ears are ever the same. Following the Hopi Ear Candles we ask you to lie back and relax even further as we give you a facial using massage creams and oils. As you drift into a deeper state of calm we then gently massage your ears and the area behind your ears. This area of your body is one that rarely feels the human touch from another and as such can be remarkably relaxing and effective. The treatment complete, you are left to drift back to consciousness in your own time. Some clients have likened the feeling after having this treatment, to have had a spring clean inside their head, leaving them feeling clear-headed and totally refreshed.
