The professional use of Hopi Ear Candles, used to aid relaxation, relief of ear, nose & throat conditions and associated problems.
Thermo-auricular Therapy begins by relaxing you on the couch and then the Hopi Ear Candle (material embossed with natural ingredients) is inserted into the outside of the ear. During the treatment, you will hear a crackling noise (like an out of tune radio) and a lovely warm feeling in the inner ear. The Hopi Ear Candle works by gently massaging the inner ear, coating it with natural products and also by producing a chimney effect, which draws out any excess wax and ultimately relieves pressure on the sinus. Far nicer than syringing!
I started having the Hopi Ear Candle treatment when I developed sinus problems in 2007. I find the treatment both relaxing and beneficial. I find instant relief whilst having the treatment and definite benefits after. Also the Hopi is a great alternative stress relief treatment to the usual massage.
