Relieving sinus pressure the natural and relaxing way
Waking up with blocked sinuses can make a really awful start to our day. Sometimes they don’t go away till much later, forcing us to perform our jobs with a heavy and puffy face.
People with sinus infections also experience headaches, bad breath, runny nose that lasts for days and unrestful nights.
What are sinuses?
The sinuses are air pockets within the bones of the skull and face. When infected, mucus accumulates in the sinuses, causing an increase in pressure. This results in what is commonly known as the ‘sinus headache’. Unfortunately, trapped mucus in sinuses provides an excellent breeding ground for bacteria, virus and fungus – which are responsible for the bad breath, thick nasal discharge and sore throat.
At present, the common treatments GP prescribe are antibiotics, nasal spray or antihistamines. Surgery is an alternative for those seeking a permanent solution.
A Relaxing Option
Unknown to many, massaging the sinus is the most relaxing and comfortable alternative to alleviate the symptoms of sinus infection. During a sinus massage treatment, pressure that is applied to the eyes, cheeks, neck, forehead results in lymphatic drainage which relieves sinus pressure.
This holistic therapeutic treatment is available at Devotion Beautique and is only carried out by highly trained therapists.
Each one-hour long session involves:
- the massage of the diaphragm to encourage breathing
- lymphatic drainage around the neck to relieve shoulder aches
- a detoxification of the cheeks, eyes and forehead that incorporates Shiatsu and acu-points
- a soothing ear reflexology and a head massage for equilibrium to finish
The haze is causing more people to develop hyper allergies and sinus infection. Getting a sinus massage will not only help to relieve your infected sinuses, but also encourage the flushing of toxins out of your body, thus strengthening your immune system. If your sinus problem is depriving you from your ideal quality of life, you may want to consider this option.
