Hopi Ear Candles Nottingham
The Benefits of Hopi Ear Candles
Hopi Ear Candles Nottingham, also known as Thermo Auricular Therapy, is a gentle non-invasive treatment of the ears using Hopi Ear Candles. The candles are an effective treatment used to help with deafness caused by excess wax, congested sinuses, tinnitus, rhinitis, glue ear, headaches and migraines. Hopi Ear Candles can also help you recover from colds, however they should only be used when your cold is nearing its end, rather than at the beginning of one.
What are Hopi Ear Candles?
Hopi Ear Candles are not candles as such but are hollow tubes of cotton which are soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs. When the candles are lit, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise which creates a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum very gently stimulates your ear, helping your ear to naturally expel the wax and impurities.
The process of Hopi Ear Candles Nottingham
The treatment is carried out in a relaxed, draught free atmosphere. You will be asked to lie in a comfortable position on your side, with your head supported with a pillow. The candle is gently inserted into your outer ear and the flame is allowed to burn down to within a short distance of a marked red line. The candle is then removed and extinguished in a bowl of water. Your therapist will then gently massage around your ear. The procedure is then repeated with your other ear.
The treatment is completed with you lying on your back and the therapist gently massaging your face to help with drainage. You can continue to relax and enjoy the treatment for a few minutes more before standing up. The initial effect can be an improvement in hearing or freer nasal breathing and an improved sense of smell. You can continue to feel the benefits for a day or two after the treatment.
