Thermo-Auricular Therapy

Thermo-Auricular Therapy

Hopi Ear Candling is an extremely effective treatment. The age old remedy of ear candling is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears that may help to alleviate symptoms of discomfort of various conditions. 

The treatment starts with stimulation of pressure points on the face.  This helps to relax the facial muscles, increase circulation and drain the sinuses.

Most clients find the whole experience very relaxing. Some fall asleep during treatment. Once both ears have been treated, the treatment is completed with a mini facial massage and scalp massage. This is a lovely way to end the ear candle treatment and will further relax the client in order to maximise the effects of the ear candling. 

The Treatment

Clients remain fully clothed for the duration of this treatment which begins with a gentle pressure point stimulation massage of specific energy points on the face. The client will then be asked to turn onto one side so that the first ear candle treatment can take place before then being asked to move onto their other side so that the remaining ear can be worked on. The finish, a gentle face and lymphatic drainage massage helps the body to make the most out of the treatment - plus its extremely relaxing and a great way to end the therapy.

Before and After your Treatment

Here is some guidance on what to do to prepare for your treatment along with what you can expect after the treatment too

  • Try to avoid eating a large meal at least 1 hour before your treatment. Please also refrain from consuming alcohol or using other substances before any treatment or therapy.
  • Arrive on time. This insures that you don’t arrive flustered and stressed. It also means that you will get the most out of your treatment. We ask all clients to arrive 10-15 minutes before their treatment is due to begin.
  • Talk to your therapist. If you are concerned or anxious about anything to do with your treatment let us know. We want to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed.
  • We ask our clients to ensure they arrive clean and ready for their treatment. If you are coming straight from work or the gym, please let us know and we can arrange for the use of our shower facilities before the treatment. (A surcharge will apply).
  • All new clients will need to complete a full medical and lifestyle questionnaire before their treatment. All existing clients will need to complete a treatment record card before any subsequent treatments. This is to ensure we can provide you with the best possible care and to comply with our insurance policies.
  • Please wear loose comfortable clothing and appropriate underwear. For any spa treatments, a robe will be provided for your comfort.

Everyone client has to complete a medical and lifestyle questionaire on their first visit - we ask you to arrive early (approximately 20 minutes) to allow you time to complete this in our relaxation area. On every subsequent visit you will be asked to confirm that none of the details have changed. This is primarily for your protection and to ensure we are aware of any contra-indications before providing tretment. It is also a requirment of our insurers.

  • Drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins; massage aids the removal of toxins from the body
  • Coffee, tea and cola should be avoided as they contain caffeine. Aim to drink two glasses of water after each drink of tea or coffee if not. Or try to drink herbal infusions in place of tea or coffee
  • Avoid any headache tablets as these too contain caffeine
  • Avoid eating a heavy meal. Eat a light and natural diet, as refined and processed foods add to the toxicity levels within the body and hinder the natural healing process
  • Do not smoke or drink alcohol for the next 24 hours. Alcohol and smoking are counter-productive as they increase the levels of toxins in the body.

Healing Crisis

Some people may experience the following after treatment:

  • Feelings of tiredness or fatigue
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Headache
  • Heightened emotional state - feeling a little emotional, perhaps even tearful
  • Changes in bowel movements/urine
  • Excess perspiration
  • Flu-like symptoms

These effects are only be temporary and should subside within 24-48 hours.
