How To Massage Your Sinuses To Relieve Congestion

Facial sinus massage involves gentle pressure applied with the hands to the skin on the forehead, nose and cheeks. A few moments each day invested in gentle sinus massage has provided noticeable relief from nasal congestion, facial pain and headache pain. With some practice, the sinusitis sufferer will develop a personalized routine that addresses specific sinus areas and relieves symptoms.

Sinus massage combines gentle pressure and warmth from the hands to break up the mucous that backs up in the sinus cavities. The natural drainage mechanism is stimulated to clear the passageways. Blood circulation increases to sustain better sinus function throughout the day. Congestion and pressure decrease so that the headache and pain associated with sinusitis disappears. Many sinus pain sufferers are surprised to find that relief is possible following the first massage.

Anyone can learn to apply pressure to the specific area of the face and head to relieve pressure in the sinuses. Using the thumb or index fingers, the massage technique includes rubbing in a circular motion in each of the sinus areas. Ten repetitions will provide relief. Facial sinus massage could provide relief without taking medications that cause drowsiness or other side effects. Techniques can be embraced to tailor the perfect massage routine for the individual.
