Clients who discover the benefits of an ear candle treatment will continue to keep coming back, bringing you a core of loyal, returning customers. The candles work using the process of convection. The burning of the candle helps to draw softer waxes and toxins from the ear. Some of these are then oxidised or turned into vapours and burnt. The warm air from the burning candle passes into the ear canal before being gently drawn back up to the top of the candle in a chimney effect. The warm air containing the herbal extract vapours from the candle helps to soothe and invigorate the ear.
The GTi Ear Candling course covers how to give a full ear candle treatment and covers the history, technique and aftercare of the treatment online.
The course also covers reception and consultation, and contra-indications to treatment. It also includes detailed technique modules which show you how to carry out an ear candle treatment.
The course is written and accompanied by images and diagrams to give you the best possible learning experience.
At the end of the course you will also be assessed on the practical element. On successful completion of the online theory, and the practical course, students will receive a certificate for a GTi Award in Ear Candles certificate which is acceptable for insurance purposes with The Guild of Beauty Therapists and other insurance companies.
You will also earn 12 CPD points which will automatically be uploaded into your CPD Diary on the GTi website.
