In brief: Floating crystals

Benign positional vertigo (bppv) is caused by a crystal from the inner ear floating loosely in the inner ear fluid, triggering vertigo.
The epley maneuver seeks to reposition the floating crystal into a place in the inner ear that does not trigger dizziness.

In brief: Very simple

You can see a demonstration under: http://youtu.
