What is thermo-auricular therapy and how does it work?

Thermo-Auricular Therapy is the professional use of Hopi Ear Candles, used to aid relaxation, relief of human, ear, nose and throat conditions and associated problems.  These include sinusitis, headaches and migraine, tinnitus, excessive wax, catarrh, glue ear and mild hearing loss.

The ear candles are gently placed into the outer edge of the ear canal and allowed to burn.  The candles work very gently on a chimney principle. The pleasant warm smoke gently vibrates and the warm air generated gives a very pleasant massage effect to the ear drum. This in turn helps to balance the ear and sinuses and helps in softening ear wax, which than can be dispersed naturally. The candles are made from the natural ingredients of beeswax, honey extracts, sage, St Johns Wort, chamomile, beta carotene and organically grown flax.

This ancient and natural therapy has been handed down by many civilisations.  We are told that many ancient cultures including the Romans, Greeks and Egyptians uses some form of ear candling.

The benefits of thermo-auricular therapy

Thermo-auricular therapy is deeply relaxing, soothing and calming treatment which can offer real and marked benefits for many problems. As well as inducing a pleasant feeling of warmth and balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses, it can also be useful to relieve signs of stress as well as helping to relax the mind and calm your thoughts.
