Ear Candles have been used as an ancient form of treatment for thousands of years – by the ancient Egyptians, Tibetan Monks and the Hopi Indians of North and South America who popularised the technique now known as Hopi Ear Candles.
The client lies on his/her side with the therapist at their head. The 6-inch long candle, which acts as a vacuum, is placed in the ear and lit. The vibration of the air rising up through the candle is promoted by the natural movement of the flame, to gently massage the eardrum. This creates a warm swirling current of air.
A head and face massage follows the candling of each ear, and generally the whole treatment will take an hour inclusive of consultation.
