Hopi Ear Candling

Hopi Ear Candling is an ancient and natural therapy handed down by many civilizations. Hopi Ear Candling is a completely natural therapy and originates from the Native American Hopi Indians of Northern Arizona. This popular therapy is known for its physical benefits in treating ear and sinus problems as well as other conditions.

What are Hopi Ear Candles?

Hopi Ear Candling (also known Thermal Auricular Therapy) is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears, it is used to offer calming benefits for many problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat areas. The therapy is widely used by doctors in Europe and America as an alternative to conventional treatments such as antibiotics, ear syringing and grommets. A Hopi ear candle treatment is a deeply relaxing, calming and soothing experience.

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.

What are the candles made from?

Ear candles are made from premium quality ingredients, including pesticide-free & untreated cotton, pure beeswax, honey extract which contains the following vitamins: B6, thiamine, riboflavin, pantothenic acid. Minerals: calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, sodium and zinc, St Johns Wort, Sage and Camomile a herb which has anti-inflammatory and astringents properties which helps to restrict blood flow and mucous secretion and helps relive mental stress, anxiety, nervousness and excitability.

Navel Candling

This ancient treatment has been used by many cultures and has helped to cleanse, purify and heal. The treatment gets its name from the hollow herbal candle which is lit and placed over the belly button. 

As with ear candling, the burning candle creates a vacuum and the gentle heat created assists with the dispelling of toxins through the lymphatic system. Although, just like ear candling, nothing is pulled from the body (the residue we see in the candle is the melted wax and oils).

Science reveals that a fully functioning Navel (Hara) energy centre plays a great role in success & happiness. The stomach has a mind of its own, the “enteric nervous system". Just like the larger brain in the head, researchers say, this system sends and receives impulses, records experiences and responds to emotions. It's nerve cells are bathed and influenced by the same neurotransmitters. The stomach can upset the brain just as the brain can upset the stomach.


The Navel (hara) is believed to be where our decisions are made, and where our core feelings, our loyalties, and our deep inner emotions are stored. In other words, it is the place of one’s true self. According to Ancient Eastern Philosophy, the Navel or Hara is the seat of Life, the centre of inherent energy. It is also referred to as a state of mind in the development of one’s character. One who activates the Navel is not likely to lose his balance, equanimity or serenity. This treatment takes approximately 60 minutes.. If you suffer from digestive, menstrual, or fluid retention, are on a weight loss journey or stomach stress condition, this is a wonderful warming, gentle nurturing and relaxing, non-invasive treatment.


Commonly reported benefits:

  • Aiding the removal of toxins through the body’s lymphatic system

  • Improved digestive, womb and colon health

  • Feeling more in control of our path and future

  • More connected to our bodies, and the messages it gives through intuition

During treatment clients often feel:

  • Well rested, similar to a full night of sleep

  • A sense of warmth, occasionally a cool sensation

  • The sensation of energy moving around, such as a swirling sensation or colours

  • Or "see", during the session, mental pictures or symbols as we work through the energy layers of the sacral and heart chakras.

As a client what do I need to do?

  • Other than removing your shoes - nothing! The whole treatment is performed on the abdomen and only the abdomen is exposed

  • Hopefully, just relax, there's no test at the end!

  • You do not need to concentrate

  • If you do not notice any sensations it's fine, it's still working!

What should I do afterwards?

  • Make sure you feel fully alert before driving, operating machinery

  • Drink plenty of water, as you would after any massage

  • Try not to rush straight off into our super busy fast-paced life! It's nice to enjoy the relaxation :)
