Hopi Ear Candling
This now popular therapy was probably used in ancient times for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual level, but today it is known for its more physical benefits in treating ear and sinus problems. The practice is safe, non-invasive and pleasant.
The candle itself is made from natural ingredients – usually beeswax and natural herbs. Sometimes pure essential oils are added to achieve specific therapeutic results.
The procedure is comfortable and soothing. Recipients of the treatment sometimes fall asleep, and it has a relaxing, calming effect on the whole body.
The candles work on a ‘chimney’ principle, drawing up impurities from within the ear. The rising air also has the effect of giving the eardrum a gentle massage, which, in turn, helps to regulate pressure. Locally applied heat also has the effect of stimulating blood circulation, which can strengthen the immune system and enhance lymph circulation. The treatment is completed with a gentle massage, which helps to stimulate the acupoints and drain the sinuses.
Hopi Ear Candles are ideal for all ages and especially beneficial for children and elderly people. Use can bring relief from the discomfort associated with ear wax build up, sinus congestion, pressure in the ears, headaches and much, much more!! Many people from all walks of life are discovering the benefits of using Hopi Ear Candles for a wide range of conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat. Now you can learn how to do this for others, safely and effectively.
Contra indications for Hopi Ear CandlingAlthough anyone can be treated with Hopi Ear Candles there are cases where Hopi should not be used. These are called contra-indications.

Providing you have none of these existing conditions Hopi Ear Candling should be a perfectly safe treatment for you to have. The number of Hopi treatments that may be needed to cure a problem depends on a number of factors. The age of the person, the length of time they have had the condition and what condition the person is suffering from. The older the person and the longer they have had the condition the more treatments that will be needed before there is a noticeable improvement, and some conditions are much more treatable than others, therefore fewer treatments are needed for positive results to be achieved .
There are some guidelines that can be followed with regard to the number of Hopi treatments a person can have to achieve positive results.
For a problem that has come on suddenly, for example, a cold or blocked nose, it is safe to have treatments up to twice a day for the first 2 days and then 3 or 4 more over the next 10 days. Long term problems, such as hearing loss or tinnitus, Hopi treatments can be given 3 times in the first week, twice in the second week and once in the third week.
A Hopi treatment once a month can be beneficial for preventing problems.

Although there is no scientific evidence that Hopi Ear Candling can cure any of these conditions there is a growing number of people who claim that the treatment has been a positive benefit to their problem.
Anyone can be treated with Hopi Ear Candles including children providing they don't have any of the contra indications indicated above.
What to Expect During a Hopi Ear Candling Treatment - Before you have your Hopi Ear Candling treatment you will be given a full consultation and asked a number of questions regarding any problems that you may have with your ears. This is to help assess whether Hopi candling will be a safe treatment for you to have and to find out what your expectations of the treatment are.
You will be placed in a comfortable position laying down on your side. The Hopi candle will be gently placed just inside the ear canal and lit. The candle will be held firmly in place to prevent any of the ash from falling in or around the ear.
You will experience a fire crackling sound as the candle burns and possibly some popping of the ear. You will also feel a gentle massaging sensation to the ear drum and some heat as the candle burns lower. When the candle has burned it is carefully removed from the ear and extinguished.The entire process is then repeated for the other ear.
Once both ears have been treated you will be left to relax for a few minutes before receiving a soothing sinus or auricular massage nd then a relaxing hand massge to finish the therapy and leave you feeling utterly relaxed. Whether you receive the massage and the type of massage you wish to have is your own choice although it can aid the positive benefits of your treatment.
