The Valsalva Method is a way to carry out the active pressure compensation in the inner ear. This is one of the oldest methods, because it goes back to a doctor in the 17th century.
Thereby, you keep your nose closed and you close your mouth. Then you press the breathing air in the nose, as if you would want to blow your nose. By doing so, the Eustachian tube opens up and air reaches the inner ear. You will sometimes encounter this method at your doctor’s, because he uses it in order to check the consistency of your auditory tube. If the eardrum vaults forward, then everything is fine.
