Hopi ear candles
Hopi Ear Candles are named after the Hopi tribe; American Indians respected for their knowledge and experience of healing techniques and their spiritual peace loving lifestyle. Hopi translated means ‘peaceful ones’.
Although the techniques used today are derived from the Hopi tribe, thermo auricular therapy dates back centuries when it was used by the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks.
Hopi Ear Candles are hand made structures. They are hollow tubes moulded from natural linen fabric impregnated with honey and powdered Indian medicinal herbs including: – Sage, St Johns Wort and Camomile.
The treatment of Hopi Ear Candles lasts approximately one hour. It involves positioning a candle in one of the ears and allowing it to burn to a measured level before gently removing it and extinguishing it in water.
The ear is then massaged to stimulate the pressure points on the ear, lymph nodes around the ear and the general blood flow through the ear. The second ear is then worked on in the same way before the entire face is worked on with a pressure point and drainage massage to stimulate the general release of blockages in the sinuses and ears and the flow of lymph and blood.
