Spring has Sprung and so will Sinusitis
Spring has sprung bringing with its sinus issues for those of us who suffer from allergies. Don’t despair as help is at hand with Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD). Although RLD is a specific reflexology technique that has been tried and tested in stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet and causing an effect in a reduction in primary and secondary lymphoedema anywhere in the body. I have also had really good results with patients suffering from auto-immune diseases. Over a period of several RLD treatments they reduced the anti-inflammatories and pain killers they were taking. But this blog is about the effect RLD has on sinusitis!
Let me tell you about a female patient of mine who came for Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage for varying conditions, one being sinusitis.
During the 1st treatment the patient felt itchy around the neck, head and the sinuses started to drain.
During the 2nd treatment the patient was itchy along the legs, head, neck and around the subclavian veins (where the lymph drains into the chest area).
During the 3rd treatment the patient experienced itchiness all over the face including the eye area, the head but also some in the legs and arms.
The itchiness is a response to the RLD treatment as lymph moves and the congestive material around the facial area in the sinuses start to drain allowing the body’s own healing system to do what it needs to do. Patient feedback is “my face itched for a while and I had to blow my nose a few times and a week later my sinuses feel more open even with the pollen being around…”
