Ear Candling holds a fascinating interest today for the everyday person and people often find it very interesting and attractive.  Ear Candling is a natural, holistic and safe remedy. It works on physical, emotional and subtle energy levels.

Ear candling or Ear Coning is an incredibly successful treatment and in large demand. It is useful for all types of conditions such as ‘ringing in the ear’ following diving activity, ear problems following long haul flights, wax in the ear etc.
Review: I felt well supported and great knowledge given to me throughout the day.  All my questions were answered. Directions for the trainings were clear and followed up with demonstrations as we followed along with our amazing booklet, thank you so much Patrice, Monaghan.

Our Hopi Ear Candling course will teach you how to use all types of ear candles safely and well – for use with your family and for professional use with clients. We work with the Hopi Ear Candles in class.

This course is open to everybody who wishes to learn to use ear candles – or as a postgraduate course for those who wish to practice Hopi Ear Candling professionally. If you already hold a holistic therapy qualification that includes Anatomy & Physiology then this course is a postgraduate professional training and you can gain insurance upon successful completion.

No previous knowledge or experience is required in order to learn about ear candling.

The aim of the course is to train you to a very high level and by the end of our ear candling training you will have a confident, detailed and broad knowledge of the principles of ear candling and how to carry out a complete treatment using ear candles.
