Ear Candling is a pleasant and non-invasive treatment of the ears, used to treat a variety of conditions and designed to be a natural alternative to syringing. Many people suffer from excessive earwax, clogged ears, ‘glue ear’, ear ache, snoring, sinusitis, headaches, migraines, sore throats, irritation in the ear, rhinitis, catarrh and all the associated side effects that these may bring. Few people, however, are aware that there is a wonderful, painless, soothing, cleansing treatment available, the effects of which are deep and long lasting.
Using natural candles made according to the traditional Hopi Indian recipe, the ingredients include pure beeswax, precious honey extracts and organic linen. These are combined with powdered Indian medicinal herbs, such as Sage, St. John`s Wort and Chamomile, well known for their healing properties. These ear candles induce a revitalising heat upon the head and ears, which soothes, relieves and relaxes.
This wonderful, gentle and natural therapy will enhance your existing practice, enabling you to offer clients additional treatments, which have immediate beneficial effects. This is a particularly useful therapy to use alongside Indian Head Massage.
This course is only open to qualified therapists. It covers everything you need to know in order for you to safely and professionally conduct a therapy session in Ear Candling. You will also learn a special face and neck massage, which enhances the effects of the Candles.
