Ear candling (also known as thermo-auricular therapy) is a simple, non-invasive holistic treatment that can be used to address a number of common ailments or problems relating to the ear, nose and throat. Widely considered an ancient practice used in countries and cultures spanning the globe—from India and Tibet to the Mayan and Aztec cultures of South America—ear candling can be hugely beneficial, even after only one session.
Suitable for both adults and children, ear candling simply involves the placement of the candle into the ear; the candle is then lit, forming a seal that creates a mild suction, and vaporising the candle’s ingredients.
While ear candling offers many benefits, below are just three of the ways ear candling could improve your health and overall wellbeing.
1. Relieve pressure
The ear is an intricate place, a deep dark canal with many crevices; it should therefore come as no surprise that a great deal of debris, allergens, and bacteria can accumulate there. Ear candling removes all of this build-up from the ear, including excess wax and even yeasts that may cause recurring infections. Doing so allows the sinuses to drain freely, and this can substantially reduce congestion, and the pressure and discomfort that comes with rhinitis, sinusitis, glue ear and colds. Ear candling may also prove especially useful for pilots and frequent flyers who need to relieve ear pressure after long flights.
2. Improve hearing
By removing wax build-up, yeasts, bacteria and other debris from the ear, using Hopi Ear Candles can also improve hearing and may help with tinnitus (ringing in the ear).
3. Relax and detoxify
The soothing and detoxifying effects of ear candling may often be forgotten in light of its many physical benefits. However, ear candling can relieve stress and tension, and even rebalance or reinvigorate the energy flow in the body by drawing toxins out of the ear and re-opening blocked channels both physically and psychically. Done in a soothing environment, while undergoing ear candling, you will experience a warm, pleasant sensation as your ears are gently cleansed of impurities; this naturally leads to a deep sense of relaxation and calm.
These are only a few of the ways ear candling with Hopi Ear Candles could benefit you, improving your wellbeing on physical and emotional planes. To learn more on how you can book an ear candling appointment at Holistic Health London, contact us today.
