About Hopi Ear Candling

Ear candles are hollow tubes made from cotton and various waxes. The candles vary in size and can be tubes or cone shaped. One end fits snugly in the ear and the other end is set alight. It generally takes around 10 minutes per ear for a candle to burn down to its safety level marked on the candle.

Ear candles are used as a treatment for relaxation and to treat the symptoms of sinusitis, vertigo (dizziness), hearing loss, blocked ears and tinnitus. The treatment normalises pressure in the ear and is an effective treatment for swimmers ear and helps with problems after flying or diving. Ear candling treatments can stimulate your body's natural systems to assist the removal of excess ear wax, debris, Candida infections and fungus.

The treatment using Ear candles increases blood flow and stimulates lymphatic drainage, restoring the balance that enables your body to correct any problems and assist in the healing process. The heat from the flame creates a stimulating, warming effect and creates a spiral energy vortex. This removes excess mucus in the middle ear, inner ear, sinuses and nose. It also increases the mobility of the white blood cells and improves the immune response. Whilst ear candles do not physically remove ear wax they do create the conditions where your body's own defences will restore balance to its systems. The treatment creates a relaxed state assisting with the body’s ability to fight imbalances.
