During the period of spring and summer, many people suffer from allergies and have problem with clogged sinuses and as a result of that they can’t breathe, can’t smell and even their voice changes.

Sinuses are small cavities filled with air located behind the cheekbones and the forehead. The sinuses produce mucus that usually drains into the nose through small channels. When the lining of the sinuses is inflamed (swollen), more mucus is produced and the channels become blocked, and as a result of that, high pressure inside these small spaces develops, which causes severe pain. Stagnant mucus significantly increases the risk of bacterial infection (acute sinusitis) and as a result of that the patient may get subsequent chronic inflammation (chronic sinusitis).

It is also important to mention that there are many factors that cause nasal congestion and you don’t have to be sick to be congested. For instance, some people experience congestion as a result of allergies, temperatures, dust, smoking, spicy food and air particles. In such case, most people would reach for a medication, but there are some treatments and methods that are efficient and much safer.

According to some experts, by touching a pressure point you can relieve the pressure of a stuffy nose, a stuffy head, and stuffy ears – super simple and easy.
