Acupressure for Sinus Relief

If you are suffering from sinus pressure and pain due to sinusitis, a sinus infection, or intense allergies, you have probably tried different medications to relieve your sinus problems. But, for some people, medications just aren’t effective. If conventional methods for treating sinus infections and sinus pain are not working for you, you may feel the need to turn to alternative sources to ease the pain. One treatment that is becoming increasingly popular is acupressure for sinus relief.

What is Acupressure?
According to the Acupressure Institute of Berkeley, California, “Acupressure is an ancient healing art developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force energy to aid healing.” Some say that applying the right pressure to certain areas of the body can help relieve symptoms of sinusitis and sinus pressure.

Acupressure as a Sinusitis Treatment
A person suffering from sinus pain may notice relief when applying pressure to certain areas on the head and face such as either side of the nostrils, the sides of the bridge of the nose, or the middle of the forehead between the eyebrows. These are all acupressure points that have been used in therapy for sinus relief. However, acupressure for sinus relief is not solely focused on pressure points in the face and head. There are also spots on the back of the neck and the top of the hands that have been thought of to provide relief for sinusitis sufferers when pressure is put on them.

While it is vitally important to consult with your physician if sinus medications are not working for you, acupressure for sinus relief may be an alternative source of sinus care to bring up to your medical professional. If you are new to acupressure, your best bet (after consulting with your doctor) would be to go to a certified acupressure professional for your first treatment. Professionals can usually provide tips for at home sinusitis care.

Experimenting with acupressure for sinus relief may help to ease the pain and pressure of this debilitating problem even more than medication or help sinus sufferers to avoid the need for sinus surgery. If traditional methods of sinus relief aren’t working, holistic treatments such as acupressure can be a welcomed new treatment.
