Hopi ear candling is an ancient natural therapy handed down by many civilizations. It is believed that the ancient Greeks used ear candles initially for cleansing, purifying, and healing on a spiritual basis. However, the practice reached the modern world via the Native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona and was traditionally used by Shaman Healers. The candles are still made on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians and are used as a relaxing treatment to ease away the stresses of our western culture and to address a number of problems relating to the ear, nose and throat area.
The process of hopi ear candling involves a hollow candle that is gently placed just inside the ear canal and lit, vaporising its ingredients and causing convectional air flow towards the first chamber of the ear. The vapours give the eardrum and the auditory canal a gentle massage and help to regulate ear pressure. A mild suction is also formed, enabling wax and other impurities to be drawn out the ear. The treatment is very relaxing and gentle and includes a facial massage to enhance the benefits.

The client simply lies on their side and relaxes as a lit hopi candle is placed in the ear. When lit, the ear candles have a slight sucking action often referred to as the chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. The rising air inside the ear sets up a vibration which gently massages the eardrum. This can help to regulate the pressures involved inside the ear. The flow of air within the ear candles creates a circulation of concentrated vapour. It is a soothing and calming process. Most impurities and deposits are carried away through the candle, and in some cases more wax could work its way up to the surface 24-48 hours later.
