Can Massage Therapy Relieve Sinus Pressure?

Sinusitis and How Massage Therapy Can Help Ease The Associated Tension

 

Sinusitis, also known as a sinus infection or rhinosinusitis, is inflammation of the sinuses resulting in symptoms. Common signs and symptoms include thick nasal mucus, a plugged nose, and pain in the face. Other signs and symptoms may include fever, headaches, poor sense of smell, sore throat, and cough.

 

In an article recently published on the OVCMT College of Massage Therapy website entitled, “Massage Therapy for Sinusitis and Sinus Headaches,” the undisclosed author and expert writes:  

 

“Sinusitis is one of the most common chronic illnesses in North America. This ailment is characterized by symptoms such as facial pain, facial pressure, earache and nasal congestion — and can be triggered by an allergy, cold or environmental factors. Sinusitis may be accompanied by headaches (referred to as sinus headaches), primarily due to pressure around the eyes and cheeks as a result of swollen or inflamed mucous membranes,” the author writes. “Techniques used to treat sinusitis include cranial sacral therapy, lymphatic drainage and Swedish massage.”
