What is Thermo-Auricular Therapy (Hopi Ear Candling)?
Hopi Ear Candling is an ancient and totally natural therapy that has been handed down through many civilisations. It is believed that Ancient Greeks used ear candles initially for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, but much later it became a purely physical treatment. It is from the Native American Hopi Indians of Northern Arizona that it has come to the Western world. The Hopi nation is renowned for their extensive knowledge of spiritual lifestyle and healing. Hopi interestingly translates to ‘peaceful people’. The candles are still made today on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians.

The Hopi Ear Candling & Thermo-Auricular Massage treatment…
Hopi Ear Candling treatments usually last up to an hour, which at Body and Mind Studio includes a relaxing Thermo-Auricular face massage with lymphatic drainage (pictured left). On your first visit to Body and Mind Studio, please allow an extra 10-15 minutes as a brief medical history will be taken, as well as details of your lifestyle and wellbeing to enable us to tailor the treatment to suit you and plan for future treatments. All information remains strictly private and confidential.
Your shoes should then be removed (no other clothing need be removed) and you lie on one side on one of our comfortable couches. A BIOSUN® Aroma Ear candle is then lit and placed gently inside your ear, just enough so a seal is made and it is comfortable. The candle is then allowed to burn to a safe distance from your ear. At the end of the treatment, the candle is removed and the flame extinguished. During this time, you may hear the candle sizzle or pop, this is perfectly normal. The candles work on a ‘chimney’ principle and the gentle vibration acts to softly massage the ear, and the rising air gives the ear drum a gentle massage helping to regulate pressure. The warmth from the candles stimulates blood circulation which strengthens the immune system and enhances blood and lymph circulation. A very relaxing Thermo-Auricular face massage is then performed on the side of the face and neck to help dissipate lymph fluid.
You will then be asked to turn on to your other side where the process will be repeated. Once both ears have been treated, you will be asked to lie on your back where you will be given a further holistic facial and head massage. This helps to stimulate the energy points, increase circulation of blood and lymph, help drain the sinus tubes and achieve complete relaxation. Many people fall asleep during this stage of the treatment, it can be so relaxing.
The findings will then be discussed with you, as well as aftercare advice and future treatments.
