Hopi Ear Candling
Face and Sinus Massage
Included with your ear candling treatment is a Face and Sinus “Eucalyptus” pressure point massage. This will help open clogged sinuses and can be done with or without a massage medium.
Hopi Ear Candling is useful for headaches, migraines, stress, tinnitus, sleeping disorders, pressure, blocked ears and sinuses, and glue ear on children. If used regularly they can prevent syringing and grommets being fitted. Ear candles have a physical function. A light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is soothing and helpful for earache and headache, ear noise, stress and nervousness.
The physical effect is often described directly after the treatment as a soothing, pressure and pain relieving sensation, mainly in the ear and head area. Treatment may also spontaneously cause free nasal breathing and an improved sense ofsmell, even when the nose was blocked before treatment. Regular maintenance of the ears through monthly or two monthly visits will maintain healthy immune system and ears.
Ear candles are safe to use during pregnancy. However, we do not recommend using them within the first 3 months.
Whilst there are no known contraindications it is wise not to use Hopi Ear Candles:
- You are suffering an ear infection
- If grommets are in place
- You are allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients used in the candle’s manufacture
- Cochlear implant
- Medication from the doctor
I use Biosun as they are the only ear candles in Europe to have a Medical Device Classification, which is a much higher level of safety standards to obtain. Class IIa, medical device directive 93/42/EEC.
