Bluebells Complementary Therapy

Hopi Ear Candling

The concept of Hopi ear candling, also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy, is a non-invasive complementary therapy suitable for the treatment of certain problems and conditions related to the ear, nose and throat.

It is a painless and relaxing treatment that uses a hollow 'candle' composed of a blend of oils and herbs including Honey, Beeswax, Chamomile and Sage. When the candle is lit, the warmth from the flame stimulates circulation and lymphatic flow to the inner ear/eardrum to help flush out toxins and promote cell renewal. The rising air inside the ear sets up a gentle vibration and suction action (the 'chimney' effect) which massages the area and helps to draw impurities to the surface and equalise ear pressure.

The treatment has a soothing, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect and can help to alleviate such problems as:

  • Build up of ear wax
  • Tinnitus
  • Sinusitis and Rhinitis
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Earache
  • Cold/flu symptoms
  • Irregular inner ear pressure
It also has a very calming effect that creates a feeling of balance in body and mind

Following the candling treatment, the client will receive a facial massage to help stimulate lymphatic circulation and aid in the removal of toxins.
