Hopi Ear Candling


Why choose Hopi Ear Candling?

Modern methods of cleaning the inner ear (such as the use of cotton buds) can in fact push wax further into the ear which can cause several problems. Ear Candles are a classic clearance therapy which can benefit many problems around the ear and head area. The lymph system and metabolism are improved by this pleasant, completely painless method of local heat application and many psychological and spiritual benefits have also been associated with the treatment.

How does it work?

A light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the Ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is soothing and helpful for the following conditions:

  • Earache
  • Headache
  • Sinus problems
  • Ear noise
  • Stress and nervousness.
  • Treatment may also cause
  • Freer nasal breathing
  • An improved sense of smell

Hearing may also be improved along with balance.

What happens during the treatment?

With the client lying down on their side in a comfortable position, the candle is gently inserted into the ear. Once the candle is lit the client will experience a pleasant crackling noise, as the heat flow intensifies. Users often describe a soothing, light sensation in the ear/head area. Increasingly, people are viewing ear candle treatment to be a normal part of their personal hygiene routine, (like cutting ones’ nails), that should be performed on a regular basis.

Is it safe?

At DD Clinical we only use original BioSun ear candles which are handcrafted from the highest quality organic linen dipped in a blend of bee’s wax, honey extract and powdered medicinal herbs. They are regularly tested at an independent laboratory in Germany, and are free of all chemical pesticide and fungicide residues. The candles are roughly 22cm long and have a burn time of 10 to 12 minutes.

The use of Hopi ear candles is safe for people of any age. Children can gain real benefits in terms of relaxation and stress reduction, as well as overcoming painful problems such as Glue Ear. The elderly can also benefit through the relief of common complaints such as Tinnitus and hearing loss. The design of the candles prevents any liquid wax or excessive candle residue from entering the ear.

The ears may feel slightly sensitive after the treatment due to the absence of the wax that in small amounts acts to protect the inner ear. At these times the ears should be protected from strong wind and high pressure such as that experienced when diving. In most circumstances this sensitiveness will be gone within one day. When beginning the treatment, it is advisable to repeat every week for the first 3 weeks.  After this we recommend clients to return every four to six weeks for preventative and revitalising work.

It is advised that Hopi ear candles should not be used in the following circumstances:

  • In cases of acute infection or inflammation around the ear
  • If the ear drum is perforated
  • If there are grommets in place
  • In case of allergy to any of the components of the candles
