Ear candling, or thermal-auricular therapy as it is sometimes known, has been used for millennia. This fascinating book covers the history of ear candling from its use by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Aztecs to other world cultures including the Hopi Indians by whose name the treatment is often referred today.

It then concentrates on practical application with step-by-step colour photographs and instruction on the treatment and massage techniques.
