Hopi Ear Candling

Ear Candling 

Hopi ear candles are an ancient and natural therapy that can offer relief from issues such as sinus problems, compacted ear wax, tinnitus and headaches.


Hopi ear candle treatments can also help to reduce inflammation in the ears and sinuses, relieve the symptoms of hay fever, rebalance your body’s natural flow, and generally calm and relax you when life is stressful.

  • A pleasant and non-invasive treatment

  • Ideal for ear, nose or throat problems

  • Soothing effect

  • A proven alternative to ear syringing

A Hopi ear candle is put into the first ear, lit and held in place for approximately ten minutes, after which the ear is cleaned. This is then repeated in your other ear. Finally, you’ll receive a facial massage to improve your circulation and you'll be given a glass of water to rehydrate your body.


You may experience some side effects for 24 to 48 hours post-treatment. Generally speaking, these are a sign that the treatment has had a positive effect. The most common are:

  • Cold-like symptoms

  • Headache

  • Slight dizziness

  • Slight dryness in the throat

  • A sticky feeling in the ears or the sensation of loose ear wax

Many people find that positive side effects are better clarity of sound and an immediate relief of pressure in the ears or sinuses.  It’s very normal for ear wax to naturally work its way out of your ear over the first 24 to 48 hours post-treatment, so you may want to cover your pillows with a towel to prevent any staining.

It is recommended that you avoid submerging your head underwater for 24 hours post-treatment, and that you drink plenty of fluids to help flush toxins out of your system. If you experience a runny nose it is best to blow instead of sniffing.

This treatment is not suitable for those with an ear infection, perforated eardrum, inflammation within the ear or if you have grommets fitted.
