What is Thermo-Auricular Therapy?
Otherwise known as Hopi Earcandling, Thermo-Auricular Therapy is becoming increasingly popular with our culture.
What can it treat?
The ear candle treatments are soothing, effective and pain relieving for ear, nose and throat problems. Many are finding it a more comfortable option than syringing.
About the Treatments
The candles are handmade and only premium quality cotton, honey extract, beeswax and traditional herbs are used. The candles are hollow and a light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the small flame create a vibration of air in the ear candle, generating a massage like effect on the eardrum. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is a soothing experience and helpful for earache, headache, stress and nervousness.

Pauline has been using the therapy alongside Reflexology for the past four years. It has been particularly good for balancing pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses thus relieving pain and discomfort when flying and uncomfortable “popping” after swimming.
