Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

Ear wax removal treatment costs £40 for one ear or for both ears. The same treatment cost applies whether there is a little wax or significant wax to remove.


Please use an olive oil spray such as Earol (available from most chemists) or olive oil drops in your ears for at least 4-5 days before treatment as this helps with the removal of hardened or impacted wax. Please do not use any chemist product that includes chemicals in your ear because this can cause irritation and does not soften the wax for removal.

How long will it take?

You will receive a 30 minute appointment the first time that we meet because this allows sufficient time to gather personal and medical information and to complete treatments for either one or both ears. The treatment cost is the same whether the treatment takes up a portion of your appointment time or requires the full appointment time.

I don't know whether I need just one or both ears treated. What should I book?

You will receive a 30 minute appointment for your first appointment whether you have one or both ears that need treating. Please indicate initially whether you believe that you require one or both ears treating but the treatment charge is the same for treating one or both ears.

Can I pay by credit or debit card?

We do not currently have a card machine facility and so all payments will need to be in cash on the day of your treatment.
