Caroline popped in to see me last week. Her Doctor had recommended finding someone who did Hopi Ear Candling or Thermo Auricular Therapy to release her stress headaches. I explained the treatment is ancient therapy with positive benefits.
The process involves placing a specially designed hollow candle just inside the ear canal. The candle is then lit and the resulting gentle suction draws the impurities from the ear. 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 small amount of ear wax is also removed during the treatment. A soothing sinus and facial massage concludes this relaxing treatment.
And what do you know, Bingo! This week her headaches and general muzzyness has abated.
The interesting thing is that we often get asked “how long does it take?” Well each treatment is different as it relies on the speed of the burn of the candle. So as with all our Treatments this is also Bespoke!
But what can it treat?
- Glue Ear
- Hayfever & Rhinitus
- Excessive ear wax
- General hearing loss
- Tension headaches
- Travel sickness
- Meniere’s disease
