Hopi Ear Candling
Ear candles are a natural therapy which dates back to ancient times.
The treatment is gentle and non-invasive. Lots of people resort to syringing for the build up of excessive ear wax which can be harmful or encourage the body to produce even more ear wax. Removing the ear wax completely can encourage infection.
Ear candling can help:
Excessive of compacted ear wax
Headaches & migraines
Noises in the ear and tinnitus
Loss of smell, and many more
There is also an aromatherapy benefit as the candles are made of natural ingredients which help heal and soothe.
It is advisable not to use the ear candles if:
The ear drum is perforated
Grommets or other drainage devices are in place in the ear drum
The outer ear is inflamed
If on a course of antibiotics
If severe dental work has been carried out recently
In the first 12 weeks of pregnancy
If a cochlear implant has been fitted
I use Biosun ear candles which contain only natural ingredients (except in the filter). The ingredients are:
100% pure beeswax
St John's Wort
Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A)
Pesticide free woven cotton
What you can expect during the treatment:
The candle is lit and the ingredients vaporise and are drawn down the hollow centre of the candle into the outer portion of the ear by a long established 'chimney' principle.
The heat of the vapours travel inside the ear gently massaging the ear drum. This action helps to regulate the pressure systems within the head, including the sinuses.
The circulation of the vapours, when reinforced by the face and neck massage gives an complete holistic treatment. The combination of massage and heat with the candle ingredients, soothes irritated areas, stimulates peripheral blood circulation, helps the immune system, strengthens lymph glands and stimulates energy points.
