Hopi Ear Candling:
What it is?
Handed down by many civilisations, Ear Candling is a natural therapy initially used by the Ancient Greeks for cleansing and healing on a spiritual basis but later on a physical one too. This is a pleasant, non-invasive treatment of the ears used to offer real calming benefits for numerous problems and conditions associated with the ear, nose and throat.
It’s used by many doctors in Europe as an alternative to typical treatments such as antibiotics and ear syringing. Rest assured the Hopi Ear Candling experience here at La Chic Beauty is an intensely calming and soothing one.
How Hopi Ear Candles work?
The therapy involves the insertion in the ear canal of a specially designed hollow candle (totally painless). This candle is then lit and the suction formed draws secretion flow that is stimulated and the vapour collects and leads to the subsequent removal of impurities or deposits. The heated air rises and gives the ear drum a gentle massage and assists in regulating ear pressure. This process is soothing and protects the irritated areas.
Main benefits of the Hopi Ear Candle Therapy:
• Headaches • Asthma
• Hay Fever • Colds
• Vertigo • Tinnitus
• Sore Throats
Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
A study conducted by the National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine
, and published in The New York Times, found that volunteers who received a 45-minute Swedish massage experienced significant decreases in levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Volunteers also had increases in the number of lymphocytes, white blood cells that are part of the immune system, and a boost in the immune cells that may help fight colds and the flu.
