CONOTHERAPY | TECHNIQUE, AND PROTOCOL
This therapy consists of introducing a cone of hollow wax in the ear canal, at a depth no greater than two centimeters, which when ignited produces smoke and heat, detoxifying and cleaning the ear, throat, nose, and paranasal sinuses.
The heat produced will be directed to the inside of the ear, this will help to melt or soften the wax and will strengthen the blood supply in the area.
On the other hand, the hot air that is generated in the upper part of the cone creates a chimney effect that sucks in the base of the cone, it is at this time where the ear canal of wax and embedded bacteria in the area is cleaned.
