ear candling training course

Our Ear Candling/Thermo Auricular Therapy Practitioner Diploma course is suitable for beginners as well as for holistic therapists who wish to add to their skills. The course includes a full routine including preparation and consultation before the treatment, carrying out an ear candling session safely and then giving your client a facial massage to give a beautiful finish to their session.

Ear Candling has been used for thousands of years in different civilisations using different methods, and it has been a popular therapy in salons and spas since it was introduced to Britain. Clients tell us that it is relaxing, enhances their well-being and improves the comfort of their ears, nose and throat area. Ear candling is said to have important energetic benefits as it helps to clear the throat, third eye and crown chakras – in Native American and other cultures, smudging with smoke is used to cleanse the aura. Ear Candling is not a substitute for medical treatment and clients with pain in their ears or other symptoms should be advised to see their doctor.

Ear candles are hollow tubes of waxed cotton and they contain a safety filter. There are many different brands of candles, and both essential oils and herbs may be included by the maker, which means that you can offer your clients a choice which is appropriate to their needs and preferences. Ear Candling is carried out on a couch, with the client normally lying on their side supported with pillows and cushions. The candle is lit safely away from the client, then gently placed just inside the ear canal. Heat funnels down inside the candle, then up again, a process known as ‘the chimney effect’. The moving air gives the ear drum a gentle massage and is believed to help regulate ear pressure. The client experiences a feeling of comforting warmth and hears the sizzling of the candle as it burns.

Both ears are always worked with the candles. The client lies back or reclines comfortably on the couch for their facial massage which includes massage cream or oils. The massage helps to improve circulation and lymphatic drainage, may help clear the sinus areas and is enjoyable and relaxing for your client. Using beautiful natural products combined with gentle facial massage enables you to offer Ear Candling as a deluxe, pampering option that your clients will return for again and again! It is a therapy which is popular with men as well as with women, and men are a growing market for salons and spas.
