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.

  • I spend a lot of time in the gym and often my muscles feel wayyyy too tight. I could never find anyone to massage me deeply enough. That changed when I met Sally, she really knows how to make a grown man cry!! She works so deeply, it gets rid of all the aches & pains that really bug me. Afterwards I'm always freer and I can move again without hurting. I see Sally whenever I need help. I do recommend her to my friends.

  • My first time with Sally and the experience was absolutely fabulous! I went to her exhausted , stressed and out of sorts needing pampering and healing. Her room is a haven! Such a tranquil environment and the attention to detail with everything a real treat! Peppermint tea, beautiful music and the gorgeous smell of oils in the air. She selected aromatherapy oils to suit my needs and then followed the most blissful full body massage which was the best treatment I have ever had. Her massage technique is amazing, and I came out feeling like a new person! The next day I woke up feeling energised and happy! I have been to many places where I feel as if it's been rushed and not quite right. Little things missing and with Sally you feel that she really loves what she does and focuses completely on what your body and mind needs. I can't wait for my next treatment. Thank you Sally, so glad I've found you! :0)

  • I recently went for my first appointment with Sally for a pregnancy massage due to an aching back from all the extra weight on the front! Sally made me feel welcome immediately and the atmosphere of the studio instantly made me feel relaxed. The massage experience itself was brilliant and Sally freed my back from the tight tension I went in with. The overall experience was amazing from start to finish and I'll definitely be heading back again. Thank you Sally!

  • Yesterday was my first visit to Sally at Zensations. What an experience it was! I usually struggle to relax when having massages, I also haven't noticed that much of a difference in the past following my experience. I had no idea just how tight the muscles in my shoulders had become. As Sally worked over the muscles in my back, I could feel each relaxing - amazing! I've certainly never had anyone take this much interest and Sally made the most of every minute to make a difference. Today my movement is freer and I feel less tense. Thank you, Sally! Great recommendation from my friend, I will be back.
