Hopi- Ear Candle
£25 45 minutes
This is a therapy which has been used for many years to treat many conditions including compacted ear wax, migraines, rhinitis, vertigo, tinnitus, hay fever, colds/flu, frequent headaches or just stress. It is a relaxing treatment which includes a relaxing face and neck massage.
I only use EU safety candles, which are designed with a safety filter. As well as offering real and marked benefits in a non-invasive manner for many ear, nose and throat problems, a Hopi Ear Candle treatment is a deeply relaxing, calming and soothing experience.
There are a lot of myths around about Hopi Ear Candling, but it is proving to me one of my most successful treatments.I personally have been having the treatment for about three years, and it helps my migraines and sinus problems dramatically. I can tell when I need another treatment! One myth around them is that they draw ear wax out of the ear. They do not, they work by vapourising their ingredients once lit, causing air flow towards the first chamber of the ear. This creates a mild suction, which lets the vapours gently massage the eardrum and auditory canal. Once the candle is placed in the ear, it forms a seal which works to loosen ear wax, so it can be dispelled naturally, and draw other impurities out of the ear. Because of this, they are excellent for conditions such as ear wax, glue ear, hay fever, migraine, sinusitis, rhinitis, vertigo, tinnitus and colds/flu.
Following your treatment I will open the candles to show you the “health of your ear”. There are four possible results, from best to worst, nothing in the candle, yellow powder, crystals, crystals and powder. If there is nothing left in there, this show you have no congestion and the candle was able to burn without any blockages. Powder means it hit a minor blockage. Crystals is a slightly worse blockage and if there is both this shows your ears were very blocked and the candle struggled to burn evenly. The length of time a candle takes to burn also shows how congested you are, 10 minutes indicates no problems, 11 minutes can indicated a problem such as colds and headaches and 12 minutes can indicate chronic ear/head problems for example migraines, sinusitis etc.
