Daily Fit 4/9/19: How To Relieve Sinus Pressure Fast
Wellness Tip Of The Day: Use acupressure to relieve sinus pressure in less than 30 seconds.
How To Do It: First, push your tongue against the roof of your mouth. Then place your pointer finger on the skin in between your eyebrows above the bridge of your nose. Apply pressure (but not too much!) with your finger for 20 seconds or so as you continue pressing your tongue into the roof of your mouth. When you let go, you should start to feel a little movement in the back of your throat and your sinuses beginning to drain.
Why It Works: This trick is a basic use of acupressure. It causes the vomer bone — a small, thin, plow-shaped, midline bone that occupies and divides your nasal cavity — to rock slightly. And that movement helps to loosen congestion and begin clearing your sinuses. So if you’ve got 30 seconds, you’ve got time to enjoy sweet, sweet relief from your unrelenting allergies. [Swirled]
