Thermo-Auricular Therapy – Hopi CandlesHopi Ear Candles are an ancient natural therapy, originally practiced by North American Hopi Indians, a people known for their extensive grasp of healing techniques and spirituality. The hollow ‘candles′ are hand crafted and contain pure beeswax, honey extract and traditional herbs such as sage, St. John′s wort, camomile and pure essential oils.
Both ears are generally treated one after the other. When the candles are burning, a mild suction action results from the chimney effect of the burning process, leading to a perceptible pressure regulation in the ears and relief in the forehead and sinuses. In addition, the pressure flow circulates a concentrated vapour enriched with herbal extracts inside the ear, effectively producing a massage effect of the ear drum and protecting irritated areas. Secretion flow is gently stimulated and the vapour collects and removed impurities and deposits. A 10 minute facial massage follows the candles, which helps drainage of the sinuses and promotes relaxation and balance.
Hopi ear candles are good for sinusitis, catarrh, excessive or compacted wax, headaches, migraine and some cases of tinnitus. The treatment is safe for children.
