Relieve Running Nose/ Sinus with Acupressure

Cold-Flu-Chill-Fever, Complementary Healing

From young, I had always suffer from sinusitis. When I was schooling, I used to wake up with running nose and I remembered my mom will take some cold medication back for me. After feeling very sleepy and struggling hard to stay awake (as the effect of some of the medication), I’ve decided to stop taking it and use tissues instead.

I’ve constantly have recurring episodes of sinus, especially during house cleaning. And I’ve learned to use the more expensive durable 3 layer tissue instead of the customarily 2 ply for my running nose. About 2 weeks ago, I was suffering from constant occurances of the running nose and my dustin was fast filling up with wet tissues (and I refused medication)- so I decided to do a few experiment myself:

1. Drink lots of water

I drank insanely lots of water- gulping down about 2 glasses of water in one sitting. I did it from morning till evening.

2. Acupressure

I did some research to find out the acupressure points to clear the ‘wind’ and damp elements from my nose. Refer to the picture below-not my face but it’s taken from a photo from the net 🙂

Take note of 4 points in purple on the diagram. Press the lower points located outside your nose (same line with the nostrils) with your thumbs (both sides at the same time) for about 30 seconds. After that, move your thumbs up to the 2 points next to the bridge of your nose and press it for about 30 seconds.

I am not sure if it works for you- but after that incident- I need not use anymore tissues. A week later, I was driving and waiting at the traffic light- I achooo again and press the points. Then, it’s gone.

Of course, keeping myself hydrated, taking some rest and having a proper diet helps. Drinking water helps to move fluid around from your body.

I would love to know if the simple method works for you.

      Hi Ilhana, sometimes localised acupressure may not work as the sinus could be an indicative of body energy imbalances. For me after learning wai tan kung which is similar to qi gong my sinus attacks gone down drastically. Physical exercises and yoga may help as when our body get more active our resistance is up and hence less sinus attacks
