Ear Candling Course Overview

Ear Candling (technically known as Thermal Auricular Therapy) is an ancient natural therapy that is an extremely valuable skill to add to any therapy practice.

It involves the use of ear candles to help address conditions such as excessive or compacted ear wax, glue ear, sinusitis, rhinitis, ringing in the ears, congestion from colds / flu, headaches and migraines.

Ear Candling is an ancient form of treatment more commonly associated with the natives of North America. However it has been used in many other cultures over thousands of years. The Candles are cylindrical with hollow centres and are made of natural substances such as honey, beeswax and medicinal herbs.

Once lit, they are inserted in the ear and are used both to cleanse and to regulate the pressure system in the inner ear. The treatment can be used for many conditions including; headaches, migraines, sinusitis, rhinitis and tinnitus. Snoring can be reduced and children suffering from glue ear can be helped.

It is a gentle, relaxing and non-invasive treatment; you will learn how to apply a complete step by step treatment to workplace standards, which will also includes a facial massage.

This course is highly practical and you will have the benefit of not only giving, but also receiving a full treatment.
