Have the variations in the weather and all the leaves falling caused your allergies to fare up? Are the people around you sharing their germs? Did you eat so much cheese and dairy over the holidays and now your head feels like a slice of brie? If so, consider Acupuncture to help you breathe again!
Acupuncture can be a very effective way of relieving sinus congestion; however, it is imperative to go beyond relieving the symptoms to discover and eliminate the cause of the problem. If you have chronic sinus problems, it is important you consult a doctor.
Constipation, a poor diet, or lack of exercise can contribute to sinus problems. The elimination of dairy and sugars from your diet for two weeks (or more) can help you decide if dietary changes may help you manage your sinus congestion.
Sinus congestion can be the result of stress, worry, grief, or guilt. Strong emotions that are unresolved can lead to muscle tension within the body. Acupuncture can help relieve this tension in your face, chest, and neck allowing your sinuses to clear.
Structurally, the sinuses resemble pockets or valleys. Applying pressure to these valleys will help to eliminate the buildup of fluids. You can continue your treatment at home with a few basic acupressure points. These points are most effective when used at least three times a day.
In the hands of a skilled practitioner, sinus congestion can be relieved with just one treatment. Do not delay if you are suffering from sinus congestion, tension into the neck and upper back, or sinus headaches and pain. Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that will provide you with relief and leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed!
