Acupuncture for Sinus Issues
You may know that acupuncture can relieve pain. You may think of acupuncture for insomnia, stress, or to help with quitting smoking. But did you know acupuncture can make a huge difference with congested noses and sinus issues?
Nasal and Sinus Health Matters
Sinus congestion often starts with an environmental trigger, like allergies, a head cold or even chemical irritants. These result in increased mucus production and inflammation in the mucus membranes of the nose and airway. Runny noses, pain, pressure, congestion, sinus headaches, post-nasal drip, sore throats, maybe even bronchitis or pneumonia can follow. Yuck!
Some people are simply predisposed to these types of illness. Maybe you notice your head colds tend to turn into bronchitis, for instance. Or maybe you find yourself suffering through one or more sinus infections a year! Who has time for that?
How Acupuncture Works For Sinus Issues
When you use acupuncture for sinus congestion, or nasal inflammation you are helping to break the cycle and prevent an escalating illness. Acupuncture works first by opening the congested airways in your head, often providing nearly immediate relief. Acupuncture can also focus the defensive energy of the body, the immune system, on the mucus membranes of the head. This helps the body to fight off any pathogens. Finally, acupuncture can be used to stimulate the energetic systems that will help dry out the copious production of mucus.
