In this case, most people immediately reach for medicines in order to treat the issue.
However, this problem may be solved easily in other ways as well, while avoiding methods which include drugs. Numerous techniques are based on physics, not chemistry, and lead to the same, or even better, results.
Namely, the stuffy ears, stuffy nose, or a stuffy head may be relieved in simple and effective ways. This is how to gain relief almost instantly by touching a specific pressure point.
1: Use the Tongue and Press Between Eyebrows
The premise of this technique is to reduce or remove the excessive amounts of mucus, which leads to blockage of the sinuses. Acupressure can be of great help in this case. Simply press certain points on the body in order to trigger the fluid flow and you will eliminate mucus and improve breathing.
You should push the tongue flat against the roof of the mouth cavity. At the same time, press a finger against the skin between the eyebrows, and hold thus for 20 seconds.
As soon as you release the finger and the tongue, you will feel the movement towards the back part of the tongue as the accumulated mucus gets softened.
Otherwise, you can also alternate between pressing the point between the eyebrows, and pressing your tongue against the roof of the mouth.
2: Apply Pressure Across Your Eyebrows
In the case of blocked forehead sinuses, you should act differently in order to clear the upper sinuses and the nose.
The popular massage therapist Amber Lynn Vitale claims that the application of pressure across the eyebrows leads to mucus movement. Place the fingers at the beginning of each eyebrow, close to the central point in between, lean the head forward, resting on the elbows.
As soon as the pressure shifts after a few seconds, you should slide the fingers to the eyebrows’ middle. Hold thus until you feel relief.
Then, slide the fingers to the end of the eyebrows, and either hold to press for a few seconds or move them in a circular motion to stimulate the mucus movement through the forehead. As soon as this happens, the pressure in the center of your head will disappear.
