Hopi Ear candles (Thermo-Auricular Therapy)

Hopi Ear Candling  is a gentle, relaxing and enjoyable treatment, which combines the ear candles with a lymphatic facial massage, to help relieve many ear, nose, sinus and throat related conditions. At Cheshire Clinical Reflexology, we also offer an amazing Hopi ear candle and ear reflexology treatment to really enhance the relaxation and benefits provided by the ear candles.

It is thought that the Ancient Greeks were among the first to use the technique. They referred to it as ‘coning’ and used it specifically for cleansing, healing and purifying on a spiritual basis.

Gradually more ancient cultures picked up on the practice, including the Egyptians, Mayan and Inca tribes. The modern incarnation of ear candling is based on the technique envisaged by the Native American Indian tribe, the Hopis (meaning ‘peaceful people’).

At Cheshire Clinical Reflexology, we only use top quality Biosun ear candles. These are made with only natural ingredient (except the filter); These are based on the traditional formula which originated with the Hopi Indians and contain:

  • 100% pure beeswax

  • Honey extracts

  • Sage

  • St John’s wort

  • Chamomile

  • Beta-carotene (Vitamin A)

  • Pesticide free woven cotton


These ingredients have anti-inflammatory and astringent properties and can help fight infections.

How do ear candles work?

When lit, the ingredients impregnated into the cotton vapoutise and are drawn down the hollow centre of the candle into the outer portion of the ear. The warmth, gently massages the ear drum. This may help soften ear wax and help with regulating the pressure in the ear.

A lymphatic facial massage is also given after the Hopi ear candles have been used in both ear. This aims to:

  • help increase the effect of the ear candles.

  • Stimulate energy points

  • Increase circulation of blood and lymph

  • Help drain sinus tubes
