ITEC Oneday Certificate on Thermo-Auriclar Therapy:"Hopi Ear Candling"
Ear Candling is a natural non-evasive cleansing technique that induces a revitalizing heat upon the head, nose, throat and ears, which is used for spiritual & physical reasons. The deep relaxation derived from the therapy builds the immune system releasing the body to do its own healing, blocked energy can be balanced and well-being is achieved. The cleansing method is less painful than ear syringing with excellent results. The oldest recorded use of ear candling is by the Hopi Pueblo Indians of South-Western America. There is evidence of this ancient practise of using candles for spiritual rituals and cleansing/purifying purposes in many other cultures such as China, Tibet Siberia, Asia and Egypt. They are used today to relax and ease stresses and address problems relating to the ear, neck and face areas.
Hopi Ear Candles are belived to treat many conditions such as Asthma, Glue Ear, Migraines,Compact or excessive earwax: clearing impurities from ears, Snoring, Swimmer’s Ear and Tinnitus. Contra-indications will be outlined.

This inaugural fair has been created by PIPPA WATT & SHIRLEYANN NELSON to raise money to setup a complementary therapy school in Bosnia. The intent is not only to ITEC train the Bosnians how to heal their own people with complementary therapy, but in turn teach those same therapists how to train others to be therapists. This benevolent self-help school will have longivity and will give hope to Bosnians of mending it's broken country.

We are looking for therapists/psychics/others to participate in the event. The concept is a win/win situation where we benefit by expanding our potential client base, more recognition for our local group as a whole and lastly helping an important world-cause.

The Event will be held @ the Harrogate Masonic Hall(beside the police station)and will run from 11am-5pm. Street-parking is available plus there are Odeon & Victoria Station Parking lots walking distance. The venue is very close to the train/bus stations. We intend to advertise the event via Poster & leaflets(we're looking into a printer that will give us a discount). So we expect between 200-300 visitors. To make it more family oriented we're looking into children's face painters and Masonic Hall will allow us to sell Meat & Veggie Sausages on a bun plus bottled water.

In the large hall we can fit twelve 10'x10' booths ideal for two therapists or for racks of clothing, crystals, etc. Towards the front of the building there is a small intimate room with custioned benches & tables which would suit Tarot & Psychic readers.
In order to cover the venue & advertising/printing costs, we propose to charge £10/therapist or reader etc. If you would like to be involved with this worth-while cause, know of someone that can help with hireing out of a stall or would like to donate time collecting money from the door etc please contact myself, ShirleyAnn Nelson on 01423 564 781 as soon as possible.

Using heat to bring about beneficial changes within the body are more than just another relaxing experience because it provides a number of therapeutic benefits. Warmed stones are able to penetrate and help to increase heart rate/regulate blood flow, also rid muscles of toxic waste, which build up from stress and bad lifestyle habits. Stiff joints benefit from the penetrating heat, making it an excellent choice after exercise or any physical work.
The stones work on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual psyche bringing about feelings of total relaxation. They are created from energy, thus they give off energy, which can be channelled for the healing purposes to the client and therapist. Other benefits for the therapist are that the stones become an extension of their hands, they take the heavy work out of massage and lessen the risk of RSI, tendonitis etc. The therapy brings about alternately sedative and energizing body responses. Hot stones therapy also relieves stress, depression, PMT and some skin disorders.
