by means of suitable cords either from the roof of the room or other supports
so that the end of the fiber wick hanging from its bottom will be about two
inches above from the forehead of the patient.
The specially chosen liquid is then poured into the vessel and is made to flow
in a stream on to the upper part of the forehead. The drippings collected
from the basin are poured back into the vessel and then this process continues
