Course overview: Our Ear Candling course is perfect for beginners and experienced Therapists wishing to expand their Holistic treatments.
Ear candles are not a traditional candle but are a hollow tube made using organic cotton or flax, pure beeswax, honey extract and traditional herbs. Ear candling has become a popular therapy in the west and is used to help a wide range of symptoms, not only those associated with the ears. Treatment includes a post candle pressure point facial massage.
The treatment induces a deeply relaxed state in which the body is better able to fight imbalances.
