Stimulation of the trigeminal nerve using a light brushing technique to induce pressor response and improve cerebral blood flow. Trigeminal nerve stimulation often provides dramatic pain relief. The trigeminal nerve is one set of the cranial nerves, starting near the top of the ear and splitting in three, toward the eye, cheek, and jaw. It is the nerve responsible for providing sensation to the face.
A visual inspection of the ear canal using a camera with Bluetooth connection to a mini-iPad is carried out with subsequent cleaning depending on the state of the ear canal.
Cleaning may include removal of earwax and ear stone, UV light, washing of ear hair and vibrational stimulation.
Treatment concludes with a gentle massage of the area surrounding the ear.
