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.
Each student is provided with a pair of Ear Candles for use in their practical training.

Starter Kit: We do not include any kits within our training courses, however we provide all products and tools required to complete the practical training on the day, at the training centre for you to use. We took this approach following student feedback so that students are not tied into specific kits or brands of products as part of their course fee, before they are trained and able to make an informed choice. Our training courses teach the generic treatment techniques and processes; they are not brand specific. In some cases, your insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. This also allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.
We recommend attending training where you will gain advice about different brands and suppliers to enable you to purchase products from your chosen supplier directly following your training.
