Hopi-ear Candling Treatment, Nantwich, Cheshire

Welcome to Serenity in Nantwich, Cheshire.  I am Lynda Buchanan and I have been successfully treating my clients and myself with Hopi-ear Candles now for several years and find this treatment amazingly helpfull, especially with people suffering with the condition of Tinnitus.    

 

 

Hopi-ear Candling

Hopi-Ear Candles are named after the Native American tribe who first introduced this gentle therapy to the West.

The Hopi nation is renowned for their extensive knowledge of healing and their spiritual lifestyle.  The translation of the word Hopi means "peaceful ones".

Ear candles are used widely throughout North America and Asia and although the current treatment has come to us from the Hopi tribe, the use of ear candles to treat ear problems has been known for centuries, having been used by the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks.

WHAT IS A HOPI-EAR CANDLE

The Hopi candle is not a candle as such, but a hollow tube made out of cotton flax.  To stiffen the flax, they are impregnated with extract of honey and herb oils (in particular chamomile, sage and St. John's Wort), the healing properties of which have been known to the Hopi tribe for hundreds of years.  The making of the candles is a complex process and all genuine Hopi candles are made in the traditional manner.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A TREATMENT

The treatment is very gentle and relaxing and may take up to 30 mins, depending on the condition being treated.

The candles are placed over the ear orifice and ignited.  It is only allowed to burn to within 4 inches of the end of the candles where any ingredients from the candles are collected into a filter.  As it burns it produces a gentle local heat.  The warm air combined with the oil and herbs soften the wax and helps to loosen any ear wax around the ear drum.  The wax will then make it's own way naturally to the outer ear where it is then flushed out during washing.

AFTERCARE ADVICE

It is advisable to put a few drops of warm olive oil in each ear for three days before treatment as this will help to soften the wax which will make is easier to remove.

On the day of the treatment you will be advised to remove any earings.

You will also be asked to drink plenty of water to flush out any toxins that have built up around the body.

After the treatment do not try to use cotton buds to remove earwax as this may push the loosened wax back down into the ear drum. You may want to use warm olive oil the next few days just to help soften the ear wax.
