"The therapy is based on the theory that when any illness or disease arises anywhere in the body, reactive sites may similarly occur within the ear"

The ancient Greeks used ear candles on a spiritual level for cleansing, purifying and healing.

Ear candles were used traditionally by Shamen healers. Ancient wall paintings (such as those found within the caves of the Grand Canyon) show the importance of ear-candling in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies of the tribe.

The therapy has been handed down to us through time by many civilisations. The Native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona introduced the practice of ear candle treatment to the world.
