Today, it is used to support the ear’s self-cleaning ability and to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with sinusitis, hay fever, catarrh, tinnitus, reduced hearing due to excess ear wax, or an imbalance of ear pressure due to flying. An assisting person is required to perform this treatment for safety reasons. The assistance will enable you to relax more deeply during the session.
