What is Thermo-Auricular Therapy?

You may have heard another name used for this treatment 'Hopi Ear Candling'.  It is a pleasant, non-evasive treatment of the ears, used to treat a variety of conditions such as:

  • earwax problems
  • earache
  • snoring
  • sinusitis and rhinitis
  • hay fever
  • irritation of the ear
  • headaches and migraines
  • sore throats
  • blockages caused by colds and infections
  • blockages resulting from swimming, diving, surfing and air travel


Evidence of this natural therapy has been passed down from many ancient cultures.  Historical roots can be found among the peoples of the Siberian prairies, Asia, Egypt, Greece and native North and South American Indians.

The Hopi people are the oldest, most traditional and religious tribe in Arizona, if not the entire continent. They are private people and have received less outside influence than most other tibes. They have 12 villages and are surrounded by a Navajo reservation. They brought their knowledge to Europe with the professional involvement of Biosun and the practice has spead across the world.

How it works

A light suction action(chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum.  As it burns, the candle creates an up draght which assists in gently drawing out secretions and blockages.  The warmth and herbs stimulate both the lymphatic circulation and immune system in and around the ear.  It also assists in balancing the fluids and pressure in the ear which can help reduce pain, headaches and nausea arising from imbalances. 


Original Biosun ear candles are still made by hand today using the traditonal recipe and the finest regularly tested ingredients.  Only premium quality, pesticide-free untreated cotton is used.  Pure beeswax, honey extract and traditional herbs such as Sage, St. John's Wort, Chamomile and pure essential oils are used.

What happens during a treatment?

Once the cunsultation has been completed, the client will be asked to lie on their side on the couch.  The candle will be lit and the non-burning end will be placed on the outer ear passage, with a light turning movement and gentle downward pressure until the ear candle is sealed in place.  This is completed when there is no smoke and the client may hear the pleasent crackling and hissing noises of the flame.  Once the candle has burnt down, it is removed and extinguished.  The client will then be asked to turn on to their other side for the procedure to be continued.

When both ears have been treated, the client will then lie on their back and receive a lymphatic face and neck massage to help clear the toxins.
