The use of ear candles has its historic roots in Asia and can be traced back to the native Indians of North and South America. The Hopi Indians of North East Arizona are responsible for bringing the knowledge of the ear candle treatment to Europe.

What to expect during a treatment
Clients lie on their side fully clothed on a treatment couch, a candle (hollow tubed) is placed in the ear and then lit, the treatment is painless and people generally report it to be pleasant and relaxing. When one ear is treated, the client then lies on the other side while the other ear is treated. The treatment ends with a lymphatic facial massage. The treatment lasts approximately 40 minutes.

To increase the benefits of the ear candling treatment, particularly for sinus problems, a combined hopi candle and reflexology treatment is recommended.
