Hopi Candle Treatment

Involves placing a hollow candle impregnated with honey and herbs oils into the ear canal. The candle is then lit, resulting in gentle suction drawing impurities from the ear. A fire cracking sound may be heard and possibly some gentle popping. The rising air gently massages the eardrum and helps to regulate ear pressure.

A small amount of ear wax may discharge from the ear during the treatment, further wax may discharge over the following 24 hours. A soothing sinus and facial massage complements this relaxing treatment

Conditions which may benefit from hopi candle treatment are tinnitus, sinusitis, glue ear, hayfever, compacted ear wax, general hearing loss.
