Hopi Ear Candle Therapies at Sparx Beauty Salons in Winchester
Ear candling is an ancient natural therapy, believed to date back to 2500 BC. The Ancient Greeks used thermal ear candles for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, but the practice is believed to have reached the modern world via the native American Hopi Indian tribe. The tribe are renowned for their healing skills and ancient wall paintings show the candles’ importance in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies.
This relaxing treatment is now available at our Winchester beauty salons. It has many benefits and can help with the symptoms of hayfever and allergies, headaches, migraines and blocked ears.

How do Hopi ear candles work?
The candles are specially designed and are hollow. They are placed just inside the ear canal and lit to create gentle suction and a vacuum effect. The burning of the candle infuses the beneficial herbs and essential oils which it contains into a vapour, which is drawn into the ear canal. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed.
