Hopi (Thermo Auricular Therapy). From the age of 5 onwards.
The use of the Thermo Auricular Ear candles was to treat ear and head problems. They were used in ancient Greece and by the Egyptians to heal the ear, nose and throat areas.
Hopi Ear Candling originates from the Hopi Indian tribe in Arizona it has been used for many centuries on their people for the purpose of healing ear problems and is still being used today. The Hopi Indians live on a Reservation site in Arizona. We use the Biosum Hopi Ear Candle as recommended by GP's and insurance companies.
Today, Candles, candling or conning are used throughout the world. Blocked Ear – wax impaction can cause many symptoms including, Pain, Tinnitus, Vertigo, Ear ache, deafness, swim ear, inflammation of the skin of the external ear canal and reflex cough or for general relaxation.
The candles are placed in the eardrum it is then lit, the ingredients start to vaporise and are drawn down the hollow centre of the candle into the outer portion of the ear. A mild suction occurs and the heat of the released vapours massages the ear drum as the pressure gently oscillates. Can be useful to clear your ears after a flight.
The action in turn helps to regulate the pressure system within the head.
