If you are curious what the procedure is, it's removing ear wax. 

The micro-suction technique involves inserting a little vacuum cleaner into the ear that sucks the wax out.

<p "It's a dry technique, which is different to the technique people are used to when they go to their GP to have their ears syringed with water, and it has a lower complication rate. It's the preferred method of ENT surgeons, which is where I learnt it.”

Lisa talks about how important this service is for overall health and well being.

It's a business story and a health check at the same time.
