How do Hopi Ear Candles work?
The process of Hopi Ear Candling involves a hollow candle being inserted just inside the ear canal to create a seal. The Hopi candle is then lit and then creates Heat & Suction. The gentle suction draws the impurities from the ear. This suction is often referred to as the ‘Chimney’ effect. A fire crackling sound may be heard and possibly some gentle popping. The rising air gently massages the ear drum and helps to regulate ear pressure. A soothing Sinus, Facial and Head massage concludes this relaxing treatment.
