Hopi Ear Candling with Karen
Hopi Ear Candling is a natural ancient therapy used for centuries. It is a pleasant and holistic treatment used for a variety of conditions. A Hopi Ear Candling session lasts around 45 mins. You can add on a 45 minutes Rieki treatment to compliment the session. First consultations will be slightly longer to accommodate filling in a general health questionnaire.
What to expect
When you enter our therapy room, and you are new to us, we will have a slightly longer appointment, with an initial consultation, where you will fill in a confidential client consultation questionnaire for general health.
At the start of your treatment, you will be asked to remove your shoes and coat, and settle yourself on our therapy bed, on your side, with an ear facing upwards. You will settle yourself on one side, and a cover will be placed over your ear. The Hopi Candle will be lit and inserted into your ear, then allowed to burn down to just above the safety mark before being extinguished. Your therapist will place a hand over your ear while this treatment is carried out.
Each candle has a safety filter, to prevent wax entering your ear. While the candle burns down, you will experience a crackling in your ear, which is perfectly normal as part of the treatment. The treatment will be repeated on your other side, and at the end, we will open the candles if you wish, to see the inner contents. There will be a light feeling of suction while the candle burns, which has a massage type effect on your eardrum, and for most people, is very relaxing. Many people have been known to fall asleep during their Hopi Candle sessions.
The light pressure and warmth in your ears can be felt in the forehead and sinuses, with supporters often reporting a soothing feeling, which helps their tinnitus, sinuses, stress and anxiety. The experience is different for each individual.
Reiki adds to the feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This is an add on option.
