Massage Relexology Treatment Relief

Reflexology Sinus Relief technique

Reflexology sinus relief techniques are performed on the sinus area represented by the tips of the toes and fingers

This technique can be performed on your fingers in public and nobody would even realise what you are doing!

Blocked sinuses can occur from hay fever, mild colds and flus, working in a dusty environment and many other common environmental reasons

This technique will provide instant relief for blocked sinuses, but unfortunately cannot completely unblock or cure a medically diagnosed sinus problem.
What the technique does is send increased blood circulation to the nose and sinus area, clearing it up and making breathing easier,and in some badly blocked sinus cases- make breathing actually possible!!

A highly skilled Massage Therapist can use acupressure trigger points to release tension, increase the circulation of blood, and heighten the body's life force energy to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same healing pressure points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure therapy uses gentle but firm finger pressure. Advantages of integrating Massage Therapy with acupressure trigger points include relieving pain, trauma, burnout, backaches, headaches, insomnia and maintaining good health through self-care. By relaxing the body and relieving stress, acupressure strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness.

Acupressure Tension tends to accumulate around massage therapy points. When a muscle is chronically tense or in spasm, the muscle fibers contract due to the secretion of lactic acid caused by fatigue, trauma, stress, chemical imbalances, or poor circulation. For instance, when you are under stress you may breath shallowly.

Acupressure points relieve chest tension and enable you to breathe deeply.

As a massage therapy pressure point is held, the muscle tension yields to the finger pressure, enabling the fibers to elongate and relax, blood to flow freely, and toxins to be released and eliminated. Increased circulation also brings more oxygen and other nutrients to affected areas. This increases the body's resistance to illness and promotes a longer, healthier, more vital life. When the blood and bioelectrical energy circulate properly, we have a greater sense of harmony and well-being.

Barometric Pressure Headaches

Barometric pressure (air or atmospheric pressure) measurements coincide with particular weather conditions and altitude (elevation), therefore a Barometric Pressure Headache is commonly referred to as ‘weather headache’ or ‘altitude headache’ and the people who experience them are said to be ‘weather sensitive’ or ‘altitude sensitive’ individuals.
