Sinusitis

Massage for the sinuses are definitely something to think about if you have sinusitus and/or allergies. Here are a few things that will help:

    1. Sinus Massage: To promote drainage and alleviate congestion, perform a sinus massage.

    2. Acupressure: Utilize the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) by applying pressure to specific acupoints.

    3. Cranial Sacral Therapy: Because it moves stagnant cerebrospinal fluid within the bones of the skull, cranial sacral techniques create an influx of circulation, which consequently eases sinus pressure. This technique is especially useful for head, jaw, eye and ear pain from chronic sinusitis.

    4. Lymphatic Drainage Massage: Because this manual technique stimulates the movement of lymphatic fluid, it helps the body thin out mucus. Especially when applied to lymph vessels in the head and neck, properly applied lymphatic drainage massage can reduce congestion and sinus pressure.

After any bodywork treatment, drink plenty of extra water to flush out the system. I can do all therapies listed above! See www.carriehura.abmp.com to find me at Salon West.
