Get Rid Of Sinus Pain With Facial Massage

January 18th, 2017 • Posted by Mary Nix • Permalink

Did you know that America's most common chronic illness is sinusitis? The American Rhinologic Society estimates that nearly 35 million people are affected with it. While there are a variety of medications used to treat the condition, massage therapy is often overlooked. When you are dealing with sinus pain, facial massage is a great option for decreasing congestion and pressure.

Symptoms of Sinusitis

Sinus symptoms depend on the cause and stage. While the flu or a cold can cause similar symptoms, they are typically resolved when the infection goes away. Here are the most common sinusitis symptoms:

  • Thick, yellow or green nasal discharge

  • Facial pressure, pain, or congestion
  • Decreased sense of smell
  • Fatigue
  • Painful eyes that may be red or bulging
  • Ear or dental pain, or both
  • Bad breath
  • Headache
  • A fever along with other sinusitis symptoms

Facial Massage

Massage therapy is a helpful and natural treatment for sinusitis. A sinus massage works to increase circulation, break up congestion, aid the lymph in removing debris, and promote draining. As the massage ensues, circulation within the sinus cavities is increased as the cerebrospinal fluid in the skull bones moves and eases sinus pressure. Lymphatic fluid is also moved from the face area during the manual stimulation. As the fluid is moved, it aids in thinning out mucus and reduces sinus pressure and congestion.

Full Body Massage

A facial massage is a great choice for sinus pain, and a full body massage can help with the condition, too. Any massage helps to increase circulation which helps to break up congestion and allows it to exit the body. It also moves toxins out of the body.
