What is Hopi Ear Candling?
Hopi ear candling is a natural therapy which involves gently placing long hollow ‘candles’ into the ear canal to stimulate the ear with warm and cold air and facilitate the removal of excess wax and impurities. The heat of the hopi ear candle flame melts and loosens the ear wax and creates negative pressure that ‘sucks’ the wax into the candle. The removal of excess wax and impurities helps to clear the inner ear and sinuses, regulate pressure in the ear and induce deep relaxation.
Earwax usually passes out of the ears harmlessly, especially if you are one of the many people who produce only a small amount of wax in your lifetime. Some people, however, produce a excessive amount of earwax which can get built up and block their ears. This can result in unpleasant feeling of blocked ears and reduced hearing ability.
