Hopi Ear Candling With Facial Lymphatic Drainage & Marma Point Massage

Hopi Ear Candling Also known as Thermo-Auricular Therapy

Hopi Ear Candling is a relaxing holistic and therapeutic treatment. Here at Ashbrooke Therapies we have
‘advanced our treatment by incorporating essential oils with acupressure and drainage massage on the face; this approach stimulates the bodies own excretory system by promoting flow through the ears, nose and throat cavities. The ears, nose and throat have a shared anatomy and have similar mucous membrane linings, which means they get similar infections or problems, thus one part of the cavities quite commonly affect the others. Our treatment technique is based on this knowledge, ensuring a more holistic approach and better results.

How Hopi Ear Candles Works?

The candles are made from the natural ingredients of beeswax, honey extracts, sage, St Johns Wort,
chamomile, beta-carotene and organically grown flax. A constant high quality is ensured. The ear candles work on a chimney effect, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. They balance the pressure in the head and ears, making them suitable for most conditions.

Secretion flow is soothing and the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits. The majority of these are passed away through the candle, although some of them can be found in the condensed candle wax residue after removal from the ear. These impurities could also work their way out up to 24-48 hours after treatment.

What is a Lymphatic Drainage Face Massage?

A lymphatic drainage massage serves to drain buildup of lymphatic fluid within your face. The gentle, light massage treatment enhances circulation in your face by delivering oxygen around the skin and pushing waste and toxins out of the lymph nodes. Using the pads of their fingers, an esthetician will massage your face in the direction of the lymphatic flow and use circular movements to gently stimulate the lymph vessels below your skin. The application of light, directed pressure serves to clear excess fluid and toxins in your face.

Benefits of a Lymphatic Drainage Face Massage?

Lymphatic drainage face massages can benefit people who have specific health conditions relating to their lymphatic system such as lymphedema. Lymphedema occurs when lymph fluid begins to build up in a specific area of the body and causes swelling. However, this treatment option can also benefit people who have swelling in their face, fatigue, stress, migraines, or skin disorders. Here are some ways you can benefit from a lymphatic drainage face massage:

  • Drains toxins from your skin
  • Reduces puffiness
  • Improves circulation
  • Refines discoloration under the eyes
  • Manages breakouts


Before we dive into treatment options and benefits, it will be useful to understand what marma points are, and how they can influence our health and wellness. In short, marma points are energy centers on the body where various types of tissue meet, such as ligaments, joints, and bones. They reflect the balance of the doshas and circulate channels of the body’s inner life force, or prana. By stimulating specific marma points, marma therapies aim to bring the doshas into positive balance and to treat various ailments and conditions. Marma points are comparable to acupressure points in Chinese acupuncture, though marma points are linked to chakras while acupressure points are linked to meridians.

In ancient times, knowledge of marma points was used on the battlefield to target the weak points of enemies as well as in treatment and surgery. Today, marma therapies typically focus on stimulating a subset of 107 marma points through massages in circular movements, and treatment can be tailored to each individual’s needs.


The range of marma therapy’s treatment possibilities is truly impressive—as one study demonstrates, marma therapy can improve circulation and strengthen digestive, cardiac, endocrine, and immunological systems. Marma therapy can thus be used as an effective treatment for a variety of ailments, ranging from back pain to inflamed skin.

The benefits of marma therapy include:

  • Increased circulation and balanced pH levels for clear, healthy skin
  • Reduced tensions and stress in the muscles
  • Pain relief (including headache, backache, and joint pain)
  • Reduced digestion and elimination problems
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Improved energy levels and mental focus
  • Better sleep quality
  • Boosted internal peace and tranquility

As you can see, marma point therapy provides a wide range of benefits for your needs, both physical and emotional. Plus, the stimulation of the massage will boost circulation and promote a sense of bodily relaxation almost immediately!
