Cure Care: providing sinus relief through acupuncture

As the weather gets damper, sinus sufferers can feel the all too familiar symptoms of facial pain, breathing difficulties, head pressure, stuffy noses and foggy thinking.

If this is you do not despair; sinus and sinusitis can be naturally treated with acupuncture, acupressure and Chinese herbs. According to TCM theory, sinus is caused by a number of imbalances in the body. The task of your Chinese medicine practitioner is to discover the source of these imbalances and then create an individualised plan to combat them.

For some, sinus can be triggered by an attack of the wind. For example, the Chinese say ‘catch the wind’ in the same way we say ‘catch a cold.’ It simply refers to an imbalance in the lung meridian. The team at Care Cure aim to bring the immune system back into balance by clearing the excess wind.

Other channels leading to infected sinuses are the stomach and kidney meridians. If kidney energy is unbalanced a person becomes weak and the body starts to feel cold. Sinus can also be triggered by stagnated heat in the gallbladder, damp heat in the stomach due to too many greasy and spicy foods or from an imbalance in the energy of the spleen.

Your practitioner will consider many things, such as the coating of your tongue and pulse when diagnosing the cause of your sinus. Treatment prescribed is usually a course of acupuncture, acupressure or Chinese herbs.
