Foot reflexology to help your sinus pain

Foot reflexology could help your sinus pain. In this video, Michele Stevens demonstrates how foot reflexology can make your sinuses healthier

Did you know that any tension in your feet, your hands and your face could affect what’s going on in other areas of your body? Your body is made up of bone, tissues, nerves, tendons, muscles and nerve endings are found all over the body.

Whether it be aches and pains, built up tension or even sleeping problems, reflexologist Michele Stevens will guide you through self massage techniques to tackle some of the most frequent issues we all struggle with.

What is foot reflexology?

The feet have 26 bones and over 7,000 nerve endings called reflexes. It is these reflexes that correspond to every organ and system within your body.

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary therapy and is based on the theory that by applying gentle pressure on these reflex points, stimulate the nervous system and opens the energy pathways that may be blocked or congested.

A reflexology treatment aims to restore the body’s natural balance. In this busy world, we spend a lot of time on our feet and our feet take a daily pounding. This impact is felt throughout the whole body.

We put our feet under a lot of pressure and never give them a thought until they start hurting

Foot reflexology for sinuses

1. Hand Reflex – Using the thumb, work the whole of the big toe at least 3 times – working this point will help clam the mind and clear the head.

2. Pituitary – Using the thumb, press and circle the middle of the big toe for a few seconds.

The pituitary gland is found at. the base of the brain and is often referred to as the ‘master gland’ of the body. This gland produces many hormones and is responsible for releasing hormones that stimulate the adrenal glands, the thyroid glands, the ovaries and testes.

3. Ear/eye area – Using the thumb, press and move along the base of your toes to the little toe. Do this a few times. Working this point will help ease pain and tension behind the eyes and in the ears.

4. Sinus – Using your fingers or thumb, work up from the base to the tips of the toes. Working this point will help relieve congestion in the sinus. Do this a few times.

5. Lymphatics – Using thumb and fingers on the front of the foot, press downwards and then slide up in between toes to work the lymphatic area. Do this a few times. Working this point will help the body to fight infection.
