Hopi treatment begins with a face massage using pressure points to make sure you get maximum benefit from your ear candle treatment. After the massage a candle will be placed into the ear and ignited. It is only allowed to burn to within 4 inches of the end of the candle. As the candle burns warm air softens the wax and draws it into the base of the candle.

Whilst the candle is burning a simple, light lymphatic drainage massage is given to the surrounding area of the ear. When the candle has burnt down is then removed and the treatment is repeated with a new candle on the other ear. After the candle treatment, a final face massage is carried out, paying particular attention to the sinus areas. After your treatment you will be encouraged to drink some water as this assists the detoxifying process.

Treatment is not advised if grommets are in place, if the eardrum is currently perforated, if an ear is infection is present or if there is sensitivity to the candle ingredients (bees wax or flax).

Generally for most people a course of 3-4 treatments is necessary to clear most problems with either a week or more between treatments.
