Hopi Ear Candles

Hopi Ear Candles are excellent for helping with tinnitus, light headiness and hearing loss. A recent comment from a patient who has just had treatment was - "this has been the most effective treatment I have ever had".

What are Hopi Ear Candles?

Thermal Auricular Therapy (also known as Hopi ear Candles/Candling/Coning) is a pleasant non-invasive treatment of the ears, used to treat a variety of conditions. The candles induce a revitalising heat upon the head and ears, which soothes, relieves and relaxes. They stimulate the peripheral lymph system enabling the immune system to function better. When the candle is lit, vapours of herbal smoke are drawn upwards, warming the pores of the ear canal and softening the ear wax. The heat creates a vacuum which draws this wax and other debris up into the candle. This debris can include yeast cells, parasites, animal hairs, dust etc. The candle draw will also help to open Eustachian tubes if these are blocked, enabling any blocked fluid to drain away.

A brief History

This is an ancient natural therapy used in many civilisations around the World, including Greek, Chinese, Tibetan, Egyptian, Mayan, Aztec and American Indian. Many ancient cultures used candles as a spiritual practise to clear the mind and senses. The candles are still made today on the traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians of North Arizona, where they have been used for centuries by their shamanic healers.


Conditions that can be helped by Candles

  • Sinus problems
  • Excessive or compacted ear wax/glue ears
  • Hearing impairment
  • Tinnitus/ringing in the ears
  • Rhinitis
  • Headaches/Migraines


I follow the Hopi candling with Bio-Mobility treatment around the sinus points and TMJ (which can be very painful) and a gentle facial massage. The treatment is relaxing and calming and can help with stress, and pain. The treatment typically lasts for an hour.

Please note that I use the original Biosun Ear candles which are regularly tested by independent institutes and have been producing Ear candles for nearly 25 years.
