Hi geekies

I was wondering how many of you have done hopi ear candling, and what you think of it?
Iv never recieved it myself and would like to try it as I suffer headaches and have been told hopi is good for headaches?

I'm sorry if this has been asked before. As a holistic therapist I dont actually offer it as a treatment yet, but would really like to try it out before I do.

Anyone?

Thanx
Elaine xxx

Hopi ear candling....has been discussed at length on several threads of late.....and seems a very controversial subject as some threads have been closed due to the heated debates that occurred.
Here is a link to one..http://www.salongeek.com/skin-geek/66656-hopi-ear-candles.html

If you just put the word hopi in the search you will find all the others.

I have had ear candling treatment for sinus probs and found that it did help relieve the pressure pain, I think its a nice add on treatment Elaine and will help some people so go for it.
I know that Nailzoo hates them with a passion and normally asks for scentific proof that they work.
But they did work for me whether it be placebo or not they helped:)

i think it sounds really nice, and even if it doesnt have any 'proven' benefits, its a nice relaxing treatment none the less, no harm in being open minded, not evrything HAS 2 have a reason and purpose!

lets feel the love for hopi ear candles geeks :hug: :D

I've never had this treatment before. I don't think I really believe that there is any benefit from the candles themself, but like a number of complimentary therapies, what I believe is that it is the care given by the therapist that actually does the "healing". The interest, touch, listening of the therapist is what encourages the body and mind to try to heal itself. If people do believe that it does help as well, then so much the better!

I have heard it is a very relaxing treatment, so I may try it and may have my mind totally changed.

It seems that the people that have had it seem to have had a good experience. I found the treatment very relaxing and it did seem to help with blocked ears.

Even if this is just a placebo as long as I felt better I don't care! xxx

Thanks for the positive replies. :hug::hug:
I am definately going to do this now I'v read these replies.

I can't wait.

I am qualified in most holistic therapies but put hopi ear candling on the back burner (pardon the pun!!):) for some time.

Thanx again:hug: Elaine

Oh WOW!!
I might try it on my dog. Does it stop them from barking? If it does I will try it.:green:
It surely cant do any harm. If its safe and effective for humans well it must be okay for animals.
Thanx Gillian thats been really helpful.

My name is Louise and I like ear candling :lol: pmsl Gillian

I agree that it is a wonderful treatment and have had many clients who feel better after. Is it a placebo or a physical effect? - who knows but the end result is that the client is happy and relaxed.

Those who like this treatment will never convince those who don't think it works so we all have to agree to disagree on this one.:irked:

It was her Golden Retriever she said she did him by the swimming pool just in case anything happened so she could throw him in.
