There are numerous people who have benefitted from Hopi candle treatment in Cheshire, Liverpool and Manchester. Apart from treating problems like hearing loss, candle ear wax treatment can cure you of congested sinuses, headaches, migraines and irritation resulting from excessive wax piling up inside the ears. Hopi ear candle treatments promote natural ear cleansing so that there is balanced pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses.
Also known as thermo-auricular therapy, candle ear wax treatment is an age-old therapy, which can help you stay relaxed and rejuvenated. It can also help in treating a variety of conditions in the ear, nose and throat. The candle burning process usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes and during this period, the eardrums are massaged by the flicker of a flame. You will experience a warm and soothing feeling as the herbal vapours from the lit candle swirl inside the ear canal. Once the Hopi candle treatment is done, the therapist may massage your outer ear and face to release the blockages in the ears and sinuses and make you feel totally relaxed.

Hopi Ear Candling treatment is extremely soothing and relaxing, leaving you with a sense of well-being and reduced pressure in the ears or head. Over a day or two, the effects can be an improvement in hearing and nasal breathing together with an improved sense of smell.
Hopi Ear Candles are actually hollow tubes made of cotton, soaked in beeswax, honey and medicinal herbs. When lit, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside to rise and create a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating natural and safe removal of excess wax and impurities.
Is Hopi Ear Candling suitable for me?
Many people can benefit from this treatment, particularly if you suffer from a lot of earwax or sinus problems. However, if you have inflammation of the ear, have an ear infection, a perforated eardrum or if you have grommets fitted, you cannot get this treatment.
Please declare any ear surgery or allergies prior to the treament, as candles may not be suitable for you.
Are there any side effects?
Some people may experience headaches or a light popping in the ears after treatment, as your upper respiratory tract and sinuses rebalance. This is normal. Post treatment, it’s a good idea to wear a hat and scarf or something to cover the ears to protect you from a chill.
Is the treatment painful?
No. It is a very relaxing experience. The sensations one can feel are warmth and relaxation.
