Do You Suffer With Tinnitus?

If so, I sympathise – not a nice condition at all! A gentleman I treated this morning, came with tinnitus and was looking for a natural method of dealing with and had been recommended to try Hopi Ear Candles which I offer.

Tinnitus or sometimes called “ringing in the ears” is an unpleasant condition where by a person will often hearing whistling, ringing, buzzing, hissing or chirping sounds that appear to come from within the body itself.

Around 10% of people in the UK are thought to have mild tinnitus symptoms, while for around 1%, the sounds affect their quality of life.

For most people, tinnitus is merely annoying and is worst when they are quiet or alone.  In severe cases though it can affect your sleeping and your concentration and make you feel very depressed.

If you are looking for a natural way of treating tinnitus, Hopi Ear Candles may be the answer for you.

Now I completely get that the thought of putting a candle in your ear, sounds completely and utterly bizarre, but bear with me!  Ear candles are not normal household candles or birthday candles as my gentleman thought I may use this morning – they are specifically created for your ears and are hollow candles which are commonly made from beeswax and paper which is sometimes sprayed with honey or herbs.

When lit and inserted into the ear, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and creating a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating removal of excess wax and impurities.  It is important to note that the candle does not suck wax out of the ear; it stimulates the ear to eliminate the wax naturally, ensuring maximum safety.

During the treatment I ask my client to lie on their side on my couch and cover them with a blanket, their face and hair are covered with a tissue and then I insert the candle which is lit, into their ear, with a protective shield between their ear and the candle to prevent any wax or heat.  It takes approx 10 mins per ear and after this I ask them to lie on their back and relax whilst I offer them a relaxing reiki session and sinus massage to encourage clearing.

It’s very relaxing and when I have experienced the candles myself it feels warm and soothing and sounds a little bit like when you were younger and you placed a shell to your ear, that relaxing wooshing of the sea.

Hopi candles can be used for many conditions including deafness caused by excess wax, congested sinuses, irritation in the ears, ringing or noises in the ears, tinnitus, rhinitis, glue ear, colds, flu, headaches and migraines. As their action is so gentle, they are suitable for children.

When the treatment was completed today my client advised that his hearing was improved and they could now hear the top notes of the music playing in my room, which they hadn’t been able to hear when he had come in.

I recommend 3 treatments are carried out within the space of a month for the best results when using Ear Candles.

An alternative method of treating tinnitus is reflexology which again can help to stimulate your bodies own healing mechanism.  Reflexology is a noninvasive and gentle alternative treatment. By applying pressure to reflex points located on the feet, hands and ears, messages are sent to the brain to indicate that there is an energy imbalance in the ears. The brain recognises these messages and then sends healing signals to that part of the body to start the internal healing process.  There are reflexology points that corresponds to every organ, glands, and tissues in the body. By stimulating these points, the body recognises where the imbalances are and starts the healing process.

If you suffer with tinnitus then come on over to my facebook page and let me know how it affects you, I’d love to know.
