Natural Sinus Congestion, Sinus Headaches, Allergy and Sinusitis Relief through Lymphatic Massage and Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

Posted Dec 05 2011 12:33pm

A common complaint of my clients this season is sinus congestion, running noses, plugged ears, sinus headaches, swollen glands in the neck and a general feeling of stuffy and puffiness in the head.


Sinus congestion happens when our mucous flushing system is shut down and becomes blocked. This can occur when we develop a cold, an allergy or if there is an obstruction or swelling in the drainage passages. Mucous production never slows down and in fact sometimes the immune systems speeds up by producing more mucous to rid the body of toxins, bacterial and viral invasions. The net result in a build up of pressure in the sinus cavities. The body responds to infection by increasing the fluid and white blood cells, into the sinuses, to fight the infection. This accelerates and exacerbates the problem.

It becomes very important for treatment and prevention to address the lymph nodes and lymphatic system to help clear sinuses of blockages. Lymph nodes share teh same stuffiness and pain associated with sinus blockages as our sinuses and are in need of decongestant therapies.

Natural therapies for allergies involve sinus flushing and support the immune system. Keeping the lymphatic system moving and decongested is a key ingredient for long term health. Often clients come in during allergy and flu season for maintenance treatments. Along with their Neti pot therapies at home and herbal remedies, an hour of Lymphatic therapy has helped many fight this dreaded season. Many have noted going a whole year without any chronic sinusitis or developing any type of sinus infection or upper respiratory infection.

Lymphatic therapy reduces sinus congestion and lymphatic congestion within minutes of treatment.

A specific Sinus and Lymph Drainage protocol is utilized for clients presenting with sinus problems, sinus congestion, headaches, allergies, pressure in the head, chronic upper respiratory infections and other indicators of a congested lymphatic system.
