Service Description

Welcome to our Ear Irrigation service. Our services are available for adults (over 18 years) only. Ear irrigation is the process of removing excess ear wax using a flow of warm water to flush out the ear. It should only be performed by a trained professional and only when necessary. In the majority of cases ear wax does not need to be removed. At All Health Matters we can offer ear irrigation in the following circumstances: - When earwax is contributing to hearing loss - When the client is experiencing ongoing itchiness - When the client has blocked ears - When the client has a feeling of fullness in the ear - When the client is experiencing Vertigo (with assessment) - When the tympanic membrane is obscured by wax To reduce the risk of damage to the ear, it is advised that you use eardrops* to soften the wax and aid removal 3-5 days before your appointment. The following products are recommended: - Olive oil ear drops - Almond ear drops (not suitable for those with nut allergy) - Sodium bicarbonate 5% eardrops - Earol drops * It is not recommended to administer drops if you suspect a perforated eardrum, active dermatitis, or infection of the ear canal. After ear wax removal it is common for a small amount of wax to remain if sticky or hard. As long as the nurse can see the Typmanic membrane (Eardrum) after the procedure this is deemed a completed service. If the wax is suitably softened before the procedure, we should be able to complete it on your first visit. However, if we cannot complete the service on your first visit, your second visit will be discounted by 40%, and in the unlikely event we still cannot complete the service, your third visit will be free. Aftercare will be discussed during your consultation. An ear health assessment is carried out as part of every appointment to ensure earwax removal is appropriate and necessary. The clinician will check for no sign of infection/ fungus/ abnormalities in the ear canal or with the Tympanic membrane (ear drum). Images will be taken, and if any concerns are raised, we can refer to a team of Audiologists if required. We have a minimum appointment fee of £35, even if no wax is removed, to cover this assessment and our staff member's time. All Health Matters Wellness Clinics offer a professional, friendly and informative service.
