Ear candling can benefit most everyone, from infants to adults. The candle creates a mild suction, which lets the vapours gently massage the eardrum and auditory canal.
Hopi ear candling
An ancient and natural therapy handed down by many civilisations, it is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles, initially probably for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, but much later on a purely physical basis. However, the practice reached the modern world via the native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona (it’s interesting to note that Hopi means peaceful people).
Ear candles were used traditionally by Shaman healers. Ancient wall paintings show their importance in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies of the tribe. The candles are still made today on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians.
Also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy, this is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears, used to treat a variety of conditions. These ear candles induce a revitalising heat upon the head and ears, which soothes, relieves and relaxes.
