Hopi Ear Candling at Aromatica Dreams

Hopi Ear Candling - Treatment Procedure

For the treatment the client is made to feel comfortable lying on a couch, the candle is then lit and placed gently over the entrance to the auditory canal. During the burning process the ear feels pleasantly warm. Recipients of the treatment fall asleep; the whole process is relaxing and non- invasive. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities/wax to the surface where they are gently removed. It is always important to do both ears to satisfy the principle of balance.

Hopi ear candles are a gentle, non- invasive treatment indicated for:

  • Excessive or compacted wax in the ears

  • Pressure regulation in cases of headache/migraine

  • Irritations in the ears or sinuses

  • Sinusitis, "glue ear" and Rhinitis

  • Noises in the ear e.g. Tinnitus

  • Energetic revitalisation in cases of hearing impairment

  • Relaxation and stress relief

  • Local activation of the lymph and metabolic process


What is Hopi Ear Candling?

This treatment is also known as Hopi ear candle treatment and "candling". It is a very ancient therapy, which spans millennia and cultures from around the world.

There is evidence of candle therapy from cave drawings in Europe and some of the earliest records of this ancient therapy date back to 3000 years ago, the ear coning was a lost energy art practiced by the Egyptians and Hopi Indians Mayans and Tibetans. The ancient Egyptians used papyrus rolled into a cone and the Greek upper class used candling to evoke mental clarity and a deeper spirituality.

Other cultures: The oriental doctors of Thailand, China, India and the Philippines have included the processes as a routine part of their regular practice of medicine. North America: When Europeans first came to North America they found that the Indians had many different ways of healing. One of those ways was ear candling some tribes were very advanced in healing the Hopi was one of them.

More up to date then, in modern Spain, Mexico, Greece and Italy the candling process is preformed as a folk remedy for sinus problems, headaches etc.

Rolled up newspapers are used for ear candling in South America and Mexico.

Reeds are still used by the Hopi Indians, Chocotow don't use cones they blow the smoke of the herbs into the ear canal.

Medical students in Germany are taught ear candling as part of their medical practice.

Rapidly gaining in popularity by holistic health practitioners thousands of people have found relief from a wide assortment of alignments.

The ear candles are made from pure beeswax, honey extract and traditional herbs such as sage, St John's wort, Chamomile and pure essential oils all enclosed in a hollow woven cotton tube.

The ear candles are about 22cms long and have a burning time of 10- 12 minutes.
