I learned this therapy as I was thrilled to get enormous relief after receiving treatments on myself. I use only Biosun Hopi Ear Candles; they are made from natural ingredients – beeswax, natural herbs and pure cotton.
Hopi Ear Candling is a gentle and non-invasive treatment of the ears which equalises pressure in the head and the ears and is used to improve a variety of conditions.
What to expect during treatment
A full consultation will take place before your Hopi Ear Candling treatment to help decide that Hopi candles will be safe for you and to clarify what your expectations of the treatment are. After being placed in a comfortable position and laying down on your side, the Hopi candle will be gently placed just inside the ear canal and lit. While the candle is held securely in place you will experience a crackling sound as the candle burns and you may also feel a gentle massaging sensation to the eardrum and perhaps some very slight, comforting heat as the candle burns lower.
At the point that the candle has burned to its safely limit it is removed from the ear and extinguished. The entire process is then repeated for the other ear. Once both ears have been treated you will be left to relax for a few minutes before receiving a soothing sinus and auricular massage to leave you feeling relaxed.
How often to have treatment
If a problem appears suddenly, for example, with a cold or blocked nose, it is safe to have treatments up to twice a day for the first 2 days and then 3 or 4 more over the next 10 days. Long-term problems, such as hearing loss or tinnitus, Hopi treatments can be given 3 times in the first week, twice in the second week and once in the third week. Many clients return for a Hopi treatment once a month to help prevent any problems.
While anyone can be treated with Hopi Ear Candles, there are cases where Hopi treatments should not be used.
When infection or inflammation of the ear is present within three months of surgery on the ear perforation of the eardrum or cysts present. After grommets, tubes or drains are fitted when the recipients have a known reaction to beeswax or bee stings.
