Sinus Relief with Traditional Chinese Medicine
Feeling the heaviness of humid weather? For those suffering from sinus, this humidity brings with it the all too familiar symptoms of facial pain, breathing difficulties, head pressure, stuffy noses and foggy thinking. If this is you, feel please don’t despair.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can relieve the symptoms of sinus and sinusitis by prescribing treatments of acupuncture, acupressure or Chinese herbs or it can be a combination of all three depending on the diagnosis.
According to TCM theory, sinus is caused by a number of imbalances in the body. and the task of your TCM practitioner is to discover the source of the discomfort and come up with an individualised plan to treat the disease. To do this your practitioner will consider many things such as the colour of the nasal discharge, the coating of your tongue and the rate of your pulse when diagnosing the cause.
When this is done your practitioner will then prescribe a course of acupuncture (small painless disposable needles which will stimulate points on your temples, nose and forehead). This will enable the sinuses to drain naturally and alleviate the pain associated with the blockage. Acupressure can also be combined with acupuncture if the practitioner needs to stimulate further movement of mucus pressure.
