Hopi Ear Candles Process
The process is extremely relaxing and soothing. A Hopi ear candle normally burns for 10-12 minutes. Ear, scalp and facial massage is also part of the treatment, which further aids blood/lymph circulation and assists in draining the sinus tubes. The candles create a mild suction within the ear canal which helps to draw out impurities as well as balancing any pressure in the head/sinuses and ears. This chimney effect, together with the movement and heat of the flame, helps to create a vibration of air within the ear canal which subsequently gently massages the ear drum. Furthermore, the essential oils and herbs within the candle help to soothe any irritated areas, for example, dry skin or eczema within the ear canal.
Heat from the candle helps to stimulate the peripheral blood circulation which in turn boosts the immune system and reinforces lymphatic drainage. This is further reinforced in the massage following the candling whilst reflex zones/vital energy points are also stimulated.
