It is believed that ear candle treatments have been used by many ancient civilisations however, it is thought that the Ancient Greeks were among the first to really use this technique. They would refer to this treatment as coning and used it for cleansing, healing and purifying on a spiritual basis. The modern use of ear candling is based primarily on the technique developed by a native American Indian Tribe, the Hopis.
The Hopis were known for their medicinal knowledge and used ear candling in rituals and healing ceremonies. They developed a specific candle formula to enhance the holistic and therapeutic benefits of the treatment.
Which conditions are thought to benefit from Hopi Ear Candle therapy?
- hay fever
- anxiety and stress
- post flying and driving pressure
- swimmer’s ear
- yeast infections
- colds and flu
- itching in the ears
It is also believed that ear candling has the potential to be more effective for relieving wax build up in the ears than the conventional ear syringing method that would be used by traditional medical practitioners. Ear candle treatments are non-invasive and work by drawing wax out of the ears rather than compacting it in further.
Is it safe to have Hopi Ear candle therapy?
Generally, ear candling is a safe, simple and relaxing holistic remedy helpful in relieving a range of ailments – as long as the treatment is not used excessively or carried out incorrectly. This is why it is important to seek out a qualified practitioner who is able to carry out ear candle treatment professionally.
