About Hopi Ear Candling
After a full consultation, you are asked to lie comfortably and listen to relaxing music. There will be a couple of minutes of deep breathing to help ground you. You will then be asked to turn onto one side. Extra pillows are used for comfort. The pre – lit candle is then gently placed into the auditory canal. I hold it in a vertical position and my hands keep the candle steady. You will experience a pleasant crackling sound as the candle burns and creates a warm comfortable feeling. The candle is then taken away while you lie there for a few moments before turning over to treat the other ear.
After a few minutes rest, you are asked to turn onto your back. You then receive a relaxing and therapeutic face massage. This will stimulate your facial acupressure points and encourage sinus drainage to further enhance the benefits of the session. Again this can or may be omitted but may effect the overall outcome of your session. Most clients find the whole experience very relaxing. Some fall asleep during the session.
The number of Hopi sessions that may be needed to ease a problem depends on a number of factors.
There are some guidelines that can be followed with regard to the number of Hopi sessions a person can have to achieve positive results. Long term problems, such as sinusitis and glue ear, Hopi sessions can be given once a week for the first month, then once or twice during the next two months. To help clear wax blockage, one session may be sufficient. However, 2 to 3 sessions may be needed depending on extent of build up.
A Hopi session once every 4 to 6 can be beneficial for preventing problems.
Following your Hopi Ear Candling experience, I will then go through the aftercare and possible side effects of the session. You will receive a sheet of guidelines that will include the recommendation that you avoid getting water in your ears for the next 48 hours. For example, no swimming. If it is absolutely necessary to wash your hair, please wait till at least the next day and use cotton wool to protect your ear drum. (I can provide you with a couple of organic cotton wool balls if needed) Please do not use ear plugs. Also avoid cold winds and draughts if possible as your ears may feel extra sensitive for a couple of days.
