EAR CANDLING

Hopi ear candling (also known as thermal-auricular therapy) is a safe and entirely natural therapy.

 

The benefits of this soothing and calming treatment include clearer hearing by removing excess wax, a sharpened sense of smell and taste, and improvement to inner ear balance (which is beneficial for post driving and post flight pressure).                                          

The origins of ear candling have been handed down through many civilisations starting with the Ancient Greeks over three thousand years ago, the Egyptians, Chinese, East Indians and Tibetans also used them for cleansing, purifying and healing both on a spiritual and practical level. More recently, the candles were used by the shaman healers of the Hopi Indian tribe, in medicinal ceremonies and initiations to clear negative energies from the head and aura.

MORE ABOUT EAR CANDLING

Your treatment starts with a relaxing acupressure massage to the head and face; this is very effective for lymphatic and sinus drainage. The ear candle is then lit and positioned gently inside your ear, just enough so a seal is made and it is comfortable. As the candle’s flame warms the air within the candle, it in turn warms the air inside the ear (this will be undetectable to you). Any impurities and excess ear wax are gently warmed and drawn up into the candle; similar to a chimney effect. Gentle vibrations act to softly massage the ear, and the rising air helps to regulate pressure. It is a very relaxing and therapeutic feeling.

At Zensations, only Biosun manufactured ear candles are used for your health and safety; these have been certified with the CE mark according to the European Medical Device Directive. They are handmade, using 100% natural ingredients such as cotton, beeswax, honey, sage, chamomile and St. John’s wort, true to the original Hopi Indian tradition.

What Our Clients Say

  • After suffering with facial pain and sinus problems for more than two years I decided to try massage for stress relief. I can honestly say that after only two treatments from Sally my symptoms have started to ease and my energy levels have increased. Sally offers a comfortable and professional service and I would highly recommend the remedial facial and neck massage.

  • Stress from my busy work and family life made me feel exhausted. My friend recommended going to Sally for massage. I currently receive aromatherapy massage and it is working wonders, by the time I leave, I feel like I’m floating on air, without a care in the world, and I’m sleeping better. Sally is lovely, she is understanding and puts you at ease. Her massages are heaven on earth, I can’t recommend her highly enough.

    Irina Saratova
  • I've suffered for a number of years with lower back, neck and shoulder pain taking stronger pain killers over time. A work colleague recommended Sally and the remedial massage she offers. I couldn't believe how much pain had been relieved after the first treatment on my lower back. I could bend and pick goods off the bottom shelf of a supermarket, something I struggled with a week before. Three sessions on my neck and shoulder followed, relieving so much pain from that area - I can actually look over my right shoulder without moving my whole upper body. A second session on my lower back has left me in such a good place now, far less pain and a good understanding of why the pain occurred i.e. bad posture. I'm recommending Sally to friends and family with muscle pain similar to mine. The whole experience is so friendly, relaxing, the scent, the music and the heated massage table. Pain killers no longer required.
