Ear Candling - Accredited Course

Our Ear Candling Course is ideal for beginner’s who wish to learn the art of using this lovely natural method (and natural products) to help benefit clients. Ear Candling has many physical benefits such as soothing the ear, calms symptoms of hayfever, relieves pressure and congestion in the ear, nose & throat. It is also beneficial for sinusitis and rhinitis. Our course also includes a soothing head and scalp massage routine that provides deep levels of relaxation for your client.

You can either opt to take the Certificate Course intended for home use, or you can select to complete the Professional Diploma Course where you will gain a fully accredited Diploma upon successful completion of the theory test and case studies. Our Diploma Qualification will allow you to work self employed, start your own home-based business, or work as a mobile therapist.
