FAQ's for Hopi Ear Candles  

How long does the treatment take?

Hopi ear candle treatment takes approximately 10-20 minutes per ear. As we perform a light facial massage at the end of your treatment, you should expect to be in your appointment for 45-60 minutes.

How does it work ?

The candles work by vaporising their ingredients and causing mild suction in the ear, which lets the vapours gently massage the eardrum and ear canal. Once the candle is placed in the ear, it forms a seal that enables wax and other impurities to be drawn out. Don’t worry, no wax or ash will drop into your ear.

Some people feel Hopi ear candles provide more relief for blocked ears than ear syringing because the treatment draws the wax from the ear rather than compacting it in any way.

How many treatments do I need ?

The number of Hopi ear candle treatments you need will depend on your reason for choosing this therapy. If you want relief from a short-term problems such as a cold, then you may need several treatments over a week to 10 days. For longer term problems, such as tinnitus, you may benefit from a number of treatments over two to three weeks with a follow-up treatment once a month from then on.
