Clear Out Your Sinuses Using Only Your Fingers In A Matter Of Seconds

RealClear Contributor


I'm not the kind of person who constantly suffers from sinus infections. I think my immune system really does a good job when it comes to keeping my nostrils nice and clear but I have experienced sinus infections a few times and every time it happens it feels so horrible. 

However, once there is a will there's a way and instead of reaching for the medicine cabinet there are some natural remedies that can work wonders for your nasal passage.

Technique A: Apply Pressure On Your Eyebrows

If annoying sinus pressure is getting you down, this easy technique should provide instant relief. Simply apply equal pressure incrementally across your eyebrows.

Do this by first placing your fingers at the "beginning" of each brow, tilt your face forward and rest your head in your hands (with your elbows on a flat surface).

The second you feel the sinus pressure shift, move onto the middle part of the brows. Hold this until you feel the pressure shift once again and work your fingers to the "ends" of your eyebrows. After you reach the end of your eyebrows, move your fingers in a circular motion.

This process should help relieve your sinus pressure headaches in a matter of seconds!

Technique B: Try A Mini-Massage

Not only are mini-massages great for relieving stress, but a targeted acupressure massage can work wonders on a stuffy head!

By repeatedly pressing against the notch (round part) of your collarbone with a firm finger, you'll be able to stimulate the flow of your stuffed-up mucus. After doing this, you'll feel your ears unpop and open completely!

A second way to use a mini-massage to your benefit is to cross your hands into a "V" shape and pump the sides of your neck. This will also stimulate your body into moving its lymph fluid and clearing you of bothersome sinus pressure!

Technique C: Use Your Tongue, Too

Now you can combine a bit of the previous two methods by using your finger and your tongue to clear any backed up sinuses!

All you have to do is press your tongue on the roof of your mouth as hard as you can while also pressing your finger on the skin between your eyebrows. Hold this for 15-20 seconds and you'll be able to stimulate the flow of mucus out of your head.

If that still hasn't loosened the mucus completely, try alternating between pressing the roof of your mouth and the skin between the eyebrows for 10 seconds each!
