What is it?

Our ear check service allows you to just come in and see a professional for all your ear problems. Never has it been easier to get your ears sorted.

Microsuction is the safest, non-painful ways to clean the ears, microsuctioning has many advantages over traditional syringing, the procedure does not require water to be injected into the ear thereby reducing the risk of complications associated with syringing.

We ask people to use olive oil drops for up to 5 days before their appointment this will make the procedure more comfortable with a greater likelihood of successful treatment.

The Benefits

  • It’s much safer than syringing. Water irrigation can lead to bleeding and soreness from bruising or a resulting infection. When it goes badly wrong, syringing can perforate your ear drum or lead to tinnitus or hearing loss. Whereas microsuction is safe even if you’ve had a perforated ear drum in the past
  • Traditionally, ear wax is removed by ‘syringing’, which means water is forced into your ear canal to clear the wax. Here’s why modern microsuction is better:
  • While we’re doing your microsuction, we get a close-up view right inside your ear canal – and we can see exactly what we’re doing.
  • It isn’t messy, like water.

Some Common Questions

Is Microsuction Safe?

Ear microsuction is the safest and the most effective procedure for examination and treatment of the ear when performed by experienced and well trained clinicians.

I Have A Perforated Eardrum, Can I Have Microsuction?

Yes. Ear microsuction is the safest method of cleaning ears with perforated ear drums. Patients who have perforated ear drums must not have their ears irrigated with water or syringed.

Does Microsuction Hurt?

If ear microsuction is performed by an experienced clinician the procedure is unlikely to be painful. The main issue that patients notice is the sound of the suction probe which is reasonably quick to become accustomed to. We use extra fine tips for suction of wax very close to the drum, in order to avoid excessive exposure to suction noise.

If you suffer with infection of the outer ear canal then the infection itself could be uncomfortable and so microsuction of the infected ear canal can be painful. However, microsuction of infected debris and wax from the external ear canal is the most effective treatment for external ear infection (otitis externa), along with antibiotic drop useage if the cause is bacterial. You can help reduce some of the discomfort by taking your preferred painkiller an hour prior to attending your appointment.

How Long Will It Take?

In most cases it takes up to 15 minutes to perform microsuction on both ears. It is very important to keep as still as you can during the procedure. The ear canal is very small and it is in very close proximity to the eardrum. Even small movements can take the ear canal image out of focus and so prolong the appointment duration.

    Great service. Friendly and helpful staff and great products. I had the iron infusion and I felt better … More the day after! I am unable to take iron orally as it affects my other medication so this is the perfect way to stay feeling well and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I am always looked after so well.

    I went to the clinic originally due to a shoulder issue. Abdullah conducted a comprehensive evaluation, … More demonstrated various exercises, and gave me a well-detailed treatment plan backed by evidence.
    He promptly addressed any queries or worries I had. The clinic offers a soothing atmosphere, which aids in reducing stress, enhancing coordination, and boosting confidence. Abdullah's friendliness, expertise, and unmatched experience in physiotherapy make him highly commendable. I enthusiastically endorse his services.
  • Avatar Samuel Preston ★★★★★ 8 months ago
    Very professional, I felt confident in my therapist and that he was targeting areas that needed working … More rather than providing a generic massage!
    With my therapist being a physio I also felt that I got more from my session and that made me feel confident in him and my treatment!
    Pre and after care given, Definitely recommend, will consider further treatments with this practitioner.

    Fatima is amazing! She took care of every little thing and always asked if I was ok or the pressure was … More good etc. Modesty was always kept at all times. Back exfoliation, facial and cupping, along with a massage made an amazing combo and I will most definitely be back to see her again! Thanks Fatima! 😁

  • Avatar Mohammad Sharif ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    Best Cupping Experience I have had from start to finish Abdullah carried out the session very professionally … More with a light massage to get the blood flowing and knew how much to cut to extract only the toxic blood and finished off with black seed oil to disinfect and start the healing process 10/10
