Course Accreditation

  • The European College of Reflexology and Massage Certificate of Attendance. FHT (Federation of Holistic Therapy) Accreditation.

The main aim of the Award in  Thermal Auricular Therapy is to enable Learners to gain the necessary practical and theoretical skills in order to provide Thermal Auricular treatments to the general public and to gain employment in the Beauty/Holistic and Spa industry.

This course is open to everyone; you do not need to have any experience. If you are a qualified therapist this will be an excellent treatment to add to your existing qualifications. Ear candling is a fascinating treatment. The results are amazing. The treatment is calming and relaxing to both the therapist and the client. During the workshop you will perform a treatment and receive treatment.

What Are The Benefits Of Ear Candling :

  • Insomnia
  • Tinnitus
  • Excessive wax in ears
  • Headaches
  • Blocked Sinus
  • Migraine
  • Hay fever
  • Glue Ear
  • Cold and Flu Symptoms

100 – Certificate of Attendance (You can work on family and friends only). If you are interested in the treatment and want to use it for personal use this is ideal for you.

150 – If you would like to obtain the FHT accreditation you will need to complete 3 treatments and a theory and practical exam.  This is more suitable for anyone who would like to add to their qualifications and advertise the treatment to the general public. E.g. Beauty Therapists, Massage therapists etc. The accreditation is fully recognised by insurance companies.

” Wow…I didn’t expect much from this course. It was unbelievable! The relaxation sensation throughout the treatment and the results afterwards were unreal…I could hear a pin drop. I slept so well and really enjoyed the pressure point massage. After 15 years as a massage therapist, I didn’t expect to learn much more…how wrong I was!! Enjoyable day and another treatment to add to my clinic” Siobhan, Galway.
