Thermo auricular therapy

  • What is it?

Thermo auricular therapy, also known as 'hopi ear candling' is an ancient therapy, which was practiced by the North American Hopi Indians of Arizona, as a sacred ritual to cleanse and harmonise. Hopi translates to ‘peaceful people’.


  •  What are the candles made from?

The hollow candles are made from unbleached, organic cotton or linen; impregnated with beeswax, honey, St John’s Wort and medicinal herbs such as sage and chamomile. They have a safety filter at the base to prevent any debris from falling into the ear during the treatment.

  •  How do they work?

When lit the candle creates a light chimney effect, massaging the ear drum and ear canal through vibration and warmth; drawing out wax and impurities; clearing the ear, sinuses and nose. This helps to balance the pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses, creating a lighter feeling in the ear and head. A soft crackling sound may be heard during the treatment as the candle burns.

  •  Treatment

This is a particularly pleasant, non-invasive treatment that is really relaxing, so much so that you will find it difficult to stay awake during it! To add to the effects of this soothing and calming treatment a facial massage is also carried out to improve circulation and lymphatic drainage. This treatment is great for reducing wax build up, sinuses, tinnitus, colds, flu, headaches, migraines and stress relief. If you have seen the pictures at salons and always wondered what this treatment is all about, give it a try, you'll definately come back for more! You'll leave this treatment with a sense of calm and a clear mind, a good treatment to have at the end of a busy, stressful week.
