Ear Candle treatments are hugely in demand as a stand-alone therapeutic treatment or as an add-on to a facial or body massage treatment. Ear candles have been used for centuries as a relaxing but highly effective treatment for those who are looking in have an improved sense of well-being and is a possible holistic alternative to ear syringing. The healing properties of the ear candle work in two ways. Firstly, the pressure inside the ear candle and the vibration of the rising air column within the candle works like a chimney, which serves to massage the eardrum and promote secretion in the frontal and para nasal sinuses. This has the immediate effect of regulating ear pressure. Clients often describe a soothing, light sensation in the ear/head area. Secondly, the warmth stimulates vascularisation, invigorating the immune system and gently stimulating the flow of lymph. You will learn how to deliver the ear candle treatment safely and also a facial sinus massage to further enhance the treatment effects. The massage performed stimulates acupuncture points and reflex zones.  Following the course, you will be able to provide a professional Ear Candle treatment working from home and mobile. It is an ideal course for beginners but also a great way to learn this popular treatment for existing therapists.
