Our Ear Candling practitioner training course includes everything you need to safely and professionally conduct an Ear Candling therapy treatment. This course is perfect for complete beginners and really good for you to start with.
This diploma course provides you with 1 full day of practical training where you will be taught a full range of techniques and sequences so that you can offer a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating treatment. We only teach small groups of students at a time, so the quality of tuition is excellent and you will receive lots of one-to-one instruction and guidance from your tutor. You also practice the massage techniques upon fellow students, and they upon you (as it's the best way to learn) so you don't need to bring along a massage model.
