AFTERCARE ADVICE 

  • *Ear wax/residue may naturally work its way out of the ear over the following 24-48 hours, this is normal (I recommend that you protect your pillows with a towel to prevent staining of your bedding).

  • Do not submerge your head under water for 24 hours after your treatment and try to avoid cold air blowing into your ears.

  • Do not insert anything, including cotton buds inside your ears.

  • Drinking plenty of water, squash or herbal teas to help eliminate  toxins and flush out the lymphatic system.

  • If you experience a runny nose please blow it rather than sniffing.

  • If you had a bit of a cold at the time of your treatment please note your symptoms may get worse.

  • You should leave a minimum of 48 hours between treatments.
