Spa Treatments That Relieve Sinus Congestion
Are you one of the many individuals who is fighting sinus congestion this cold season? You’re not alone. According to a weekly report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, influenza and cold symptoms are on the rise in the U.S., with record numbers of cases being reported during the 2018-2019 cold and flu season. One of the worst symptoms associated with the common cold is sinus congestion, which can cause pressure to build in the sinuses contributing to headaches, eye aches, runny/stuffy nose, and dry, irritated skin on the face.
Here at Remedi Spa in Staten Island, we offer a few beneficial spa treatments that can help alleviate sinus congestion, pressure, and headache. Today, we’ll look at these treatments and how they can help you feel better, breathe better, and encourage the body’s natural healing ability to fight off the common cold.
Relieve Sinus Congestion With These Spa Treatments
Aromatherapy is a natural healing remedy that has been used by cultures worldwide for centuries to treat a number of conditions and symptoms. Using aromatic essential oils derived from plants, herbs, and spices, aromatherapy can work on its own, or in combination with another treatment, such as a massage, to relieve a number of symptoms, ease tension, and alleviate physical, mental, and emotional stress.
When inhaled through the sinuses, aromas like lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, sage, tea tree oil, and others can ease inflammation in the sinuses, allowing the sinuses to open up for improved respiratory function. When applied topically, these oils can relieve tension, inflammation, and aches and pain, which are often associated with sinus congestion.
Reflexology is an ancient healing tradition based on Chinese medicine that addresses numerous symptoms and conditions. Reflexology involves tapping into specific pressure points located on the hands and feet that correlate to other systems and regions in the body. By massaging these pressure points, such as the Lung Point, the Sinus Point, and the Nose Point, your therapist can:
Increase circulation and qi flow
Boost energy flow
Strengthen immune system
Massage Therapy with Sinus Package
If you have sinus pressure and congestion from a cold or allergies, a soothing sinus massage can help with circulation and toxin removal to help clear away mucus and reduce pressure in the sinus cavity. By focusing on the specific sinus points on the head, face, and neck and combining massage with aromatherapy, your massage therapist can unblock the sinuses, clear congestion, and reduce soreness and ache.
