• 1Connect the balloon to the flat end of the nose piece.

  • 2Hold the ball-shaped part of the nose piece firmly against your left nostril with your left hand. Compress your right nostril, using your right index finger.

  • 3Inhale deeply through your mouth, then close your mouth and inflate the balloon by blowing through your left nostril until the balloon is the size of a grapefruit.

4Still with the inflated balloon tight to the left nostril, perform some swallowing manoeuvers.

5Repeat the procedure through your right nostril. You will know that the treatment works if you experience a pressure increase and/or a “click” in the ear. Each balloon can be used up to 20 times. Read the instructions for use before starting the treatment.
