Ear Candling is an ancient form of treatment more commonly associated with the natives of North America. However it has been used in many other cultures over thousands of years.
The Candles are cylindrical with hollow centres and are made of natural substances such as honey, beeswax and medicinal herbs. Once lit, they are inserted in the ear and are used both to cleanse and to regulate the pressure system in the inner ear. The treatment can be used for many conditions including; headaches, migraines, sinusitis, rhinitis and tinnitus. Snoring can be reduced and children suffering from glue ear can be helped.
All the A & P you require will be included in your course manuals.
Each student is supplied with a pair of Biosun Hopi Ear Candles to use throughout the course and the practical session in the afternoon.
