Our Vision

The Tivic Health team is dedicated to exploring the use of microcurrents for therapeutic benefit and pioneering advances in bioelectronic medicine.

Our initial focus is delivering sinus pain relief.  SYNUS is new alternative for temporary relief of sinus pain and pressure.  

Currently, the most recommended treatment for those experiencing recurring sinus pain is daily flushing of the nose with salt water. We believe people should have access to relief without pills, sprays and flushes.
