SSI Free Immersion (Bali) Topics

Understanding the basics of free immersion specialty
Getting comfortable with equalizing the pressure in your ears

As you know, diving involves going underwater, where the pressure is greater than the atmospheric pressure at the surface. This difference in pressure can cause discomfort in your ears, and can even damage them if it’s not equalized. Equalizing the pressure simply means letting air into your middle ear so that the pressure on both sides of your eardrum is the same.

There are a few different techniques that you can use on both head-up and head-down free immersion to equalize the pressure in your ears, but the most common one is the Valsalva maneuver. To do this, you simply pinch your nose shut and try to blow gently out through it. This increases the pressure in your middle ear and should help to equalize the pressure on both sides of your eardrum.

Of course, equalizing the pressure in your ears is not always as simple as the Valsalva maneuver. If you’re having trouble equalizing, there are a few other things that you can try. One is the Toynbee maneuver, which involves swallowing while pinching your nose shut. This can help to open up the Eustachian tubes, which connect the middle ear to the back of the throat.

Another option is the Frenzel maneuver, which is similar.
