Also known as Thermo Auricular Therapy, Hopi ear candling is an ancient therapy with positive benefits.
The process involves placing a specially designed hollow candle just inside the ear canal. The candle is then lit and the resulting gentle suction draws the impurities from the ear. A fire crackling sound may be heard and possibly some gentle popping. The rising air gently massages the ear drum and helps to regulate ear pressure. A soothing sinus and facial massage concludes this relaxing treatment.
