Thermo Therapy (Hopi ear candling)

Ear candles have been used by many cultures for a very long time as an effective natural therapy.  The Hopi, the oldest Pueblo people near to the Grand Canyon in the USA, have a great medicinal knowledge and high level of spirituality.  They brought this knowledge to Europe working in conjunction with Biosun.

The ear candles are used in the Indian Relaxation Ceremony - they calm the mind and soothe the head and ears.  They evoke a feeling of harmony of Body, Soul and Spirit.

We only use the original Biosun ear candles which are still made by hand today using the traditional recipe and the finest of ingredients.  They are made from organic linen, pure beeswax, honey extract, traditional herbs such as St John's Wort, Chamomile, Sage and pure essential oils.

Thermo therapy, using the original Biosun Hopi ear candles, is a gentle and natural treatment and is excellent to have when you need to relax deeply, before a flight for instance. 

Caroline achieved an IEB (International Examination Board) Certificate in Thermo Therapy in February 2002 having underaken an examination in this subject plus submitting extensive case studies.

Caroline also has relevant Public Liability and  Malpractice Insurance cover with Alan Boswell Insurance Brokers Ltd in Norfolk which is renewed annually in June each year through her membership of the Association of Reflexologists.

What does a Thermo Therapy treatment entail?

A consultation is always undertaken at the first treatment to record the client's health, diet and lifestyle and to establish any contra-indications to treatment.  The initial consultation lasts for around 15-30 minutes and a small additional fee is payable only at the first session.

If you have a serious medical condition or are receiving medical treatment, you should consult your GP before commencing treatment.  Thermo Therapy should not be used as an alternative to seeing your GP.  It is a complementary therapy and can be used alongside other medical treatments.

This therapy is extremely relaxing and there are very few contra-indications to treatment.  The candles are even safe to use on very young children if used by a qualified therapist.

The client lays down on one side in a comforable position.  After inspection of the ear with the otoscope, the ear candle is placed over the ear canal and lit the other end.  The client should hear a pleasant crackling and hissing noise of the flame as it burns down the candle.  The same procedure will be performed on the other ear as both ears should be treated at each session.  Some gentle massage around the ears and face will be performed after the treatment.  The whole treatment will take about 45 minutes.

Every effort will be made to make the client feel comfortable and secure in pleasant surroundings and it should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience.  Relaxing background music is played to encourage deep relaxation and to heighten feelings of tranquility and well-being.   However sometimes a little heat will be felt around the ear area and great care will be taken to  make this a safe and relaxing treatment.

At subsequent treatments there will be a shorter questionnaire just to see how you have been since the last treatment.
