Hopi Ear Candling Professional Workshop

2020 Dates to be confirmed. Please ask for more info.


This course is recognised and insurable by FHT and other major insurers.

Hopi Ear Candling, also known as auricular Therapy, is a completely natural therapy and has come from the Native American Hopi Indians of Northern Arizona to the Western world. This now popular therapy is known for its physical benefits in treating ear and sinus problems as well as other conditions. The candle itself is made from natural ingredients – usually 100% beeswax, but sometimes with the addition of natural herbs or essential oils. The procedure is comfortable and soothing. Recipients of the treatment sometimes fall asleep, and it has a relaxing, calming effect on the whole body. The warmth of the flame and the rising air helps soften wax and also gives the ear drum a gentle, but pleasant massage which, in turn, helps to regulate pressure.
