Hopi Ear Candling treatments (also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy) is a deeply relaxing, very pleasant, non-invasive nurturing treatment of the ears helping to treat several conditions.
Ear candles are specialized cotton/linen tubes, impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils which are painlessly inserted into one ear at a time. Once lit the candles work by vaporizing their ingredients, causing some air inside the candle to become heavier and spiral downwards into the ear canal gently massaging the eardrum and auditory canal. When the candle is placed in the ear it forms a seal and the rising air column creates a very mild suction effect at the base which will help to loosen compacted earwax.
You may experience a pleasant crackling sound as the candle burns and you may experience a warm comfortable feeling.

Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is an Ayurvedic treatment working on the upper back & arms, shoulders, scalp and face. This invigorating, uplifting and revitalizing treatment was traditionally done in a seated position but I use the modified approach where you are lying down on the treatment couch which can be more relaxing.
This deeply calming treatment promotes relaxation, relieves tension/fatigue/headaches/migraines/muscle stiffness and sinus issues. Other benefits include:
– Relief from anxiety and reduces stress levels aiding in better sleep habits. Aiding relaxation can have a positive effect on some stress-related skin & scalp conditions including alopecia, dandruff, psoriasis & eczema.
– Promotes hair growth.
– Increasing oxygen to the brain together with stress reduction can boost memory capabilities, promote alertness and improve concentration.
– Improves circulation, can lower blood pressure.
