what is it?

The practice of Hopi Ear Candling, also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy, is a safe, pain-free, non-invasive and relaxing method of relieving many pressure-related head problems and for cleaning the ears of excess wax and other matter. It has been practiced for countless generations and in many cultures.


symptoms that may indicate your need for hopi ear candling

Below are some of the symptoms that may indicate you may need this treatment:
Excessive wax production
Tinnitus buzzing or ringing in the ear
Itching or discomfort in the ear
Tensions in the jaw and/or neck
Headaches and migraine
Travel sickness
Mild vertigo
Poor balance
Pressure relief after diving or flying
Stress and anxiety


During the Hopi Ear candling treatment, you the client, will lay on a couch on one side, in a comfortable position, with your head supported by a pillow. The pointed end of the Hopi ear candle is placed through a barrier shield and then in the outer ear in a horizontal position. The ignited candle is held at all times by your therapist while it is burning down and you may feel a gentle warming sensation in the ear and hear a pleasant crackling sound during the process.

The warm air softens any debris and excess wax in the ear and it is drawn into the base of the Hopi ear candle through a chimney effect. The movement of the flame creates a vibration of air that generates a massage-like effect on the eardrum. Administering gentle heat locally stimulates the peripheral blood circulation, lymphatic and immune systems.

Once the Hopi ear candle has burnt down to a marked level it is removed and extinguished. The process is then repeated on the other ear with each Hopi ear candle usually taking between 10 and 20 minutes to burn down which varies for each individual. The whole Hopi ear candling experience is so wonderfully relaxing and soothing that many people drift off to sleep.

The Hopi ear candles induce a revitalizing heat on the head and ears, which soften, relieve and relax you. The treatment also offers real benefits for many problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat.​
