Thermo-Auricular Therapy

Thermo-Auricular Therapy, also known as Thermal Auricular Therapy or more commonly - Hopi Ear Candling - is a wonderfully relaxing, yet effective treatment.

The training we offer not includes teaching the professional and appropriate usage of the candles but also how to perform the pre-treatment Acupressure Massage along with a post-treatment mini Acupressure Facial.

It is a wonderful treatment to offer as a stand-alone treatment or incorporate it into other massage or spa-treatments as a bolt on therapy.

After completion of this class you will be asked to provide 10 case studies (either 10 different people or 5 people, with two treatments). You will only be awarded your certification after you have submitted these case studies and feedback has been given.

As with all of our physical and energy therapies, once you have completed the home study part of the class, before you begin your case studies, you are welcome to book a 'training day' in with us which will be held in Glastonbury, Somerset. The cost of this face-to-face training is free of charge and this is not a pre-requisite of completing the course. If you'd like further information on our training days, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.


Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a Certificate of completion which is fully accredited with the IPHM and recognised for insurance purposes by Westminster Insurance.

For those who wish to obtain insurance cover to practice their new skills on the public, after you have completed this course, we will give you details on how to go about obtaining insurance through our insurer to ensure you are fully covered.
