It can develop our awareness of our own energetic self and help to revitalise our body and free it from emotional issues, belief systems and physical disorders. Reiki is a way of bringing us back home, of reconnecting with the essence of who we are. Hopi Ear Candling
Ear candles have been used by many cultures as an effective natural therapy since ancient times.
Ear candles have a purely physical function. A light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the Ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is soothing and helpful for earache and headache, ear noise, stress and nervousness. The physical effect is often described directly after the treatment as a soothing, pressure and pain relieving sensation, mainly in the ear and head area. All treatments include a relaxing face massage with essential oil if requested to help clear the sinuses and provide a gentle end to a comforting and relaxing session.
A holistic approach is used at all times and a full case history is taken on initial consultation to ensure appropriate treatment is offered and the whole person is considered not just symptoms
