Ear Candling also know as Hopi Ear Candling, Thermal-Auricular Therapy and Coning, is derived from ancient practices which have their roots in many cultures, particularly Siberian, Native North and South American Indian and Asian. It brings together the use of fire for light, warmth and relaxation with the traditional use of smoke for cleansing, release and purification.
As the candle burns it creates a very mild suction, gentle warmth and a subtle vibration within the structures of the ear. Each treatment lasts approximately forty five minutes and is complemented by a soothing facial massage which helps to amplify the effect of the candles.
Some of the conditions which may benefit from this treatment include:-
- Excessive or compacted ear wax
- Sinus problems
- Ear aches
- Pressure regulation
- Mild hearing loss
The treatment is also very relaxing making it ideal for anyone suffering from stress or stress related problems.
I only use Original Biosun ear candles which are medical products class IIa according to medical device directive 93/42/EEC.
