SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Tivic Health™ Systems Inc. today announced that, ClearUP® Sinus Pain Relief, a game-changing treatment for sinus pain due to allergic rhinitis, has been named a finalist at the Health 2.0 Annual Launch! competition. Health 2.0 will take place September 16-18 at Santa Clara Convention Center and the Launch! competition will take place on Wednesday afternoon, September 18.

About ClearUP Sinus Pain Relief
ClearUP is the only solution on the market that relieves allergy-related sinus pain using gentle microcurrent waveforms. Using neuromodulation ClearUP works with the body's natural electricity and delivers a proprietary microcurrent waveform that stimulates sinus nerve fibers under the skin as the user glides ClearUP around their cheek, nose and brow bone. Low-level electrical stimulation of the sinus nerve fibers has been known to alleviate pain and pressure sensations and result in smaller blood vessel diameter and reduced edema (swelling). Allergy sufferers can relieve sinus pain in one five-minute treatment.
