Drain Your Sinuses with Foot Reflexology

Has spring greeted you with sniffling, sneezing, congestion and runny, itchy eyes, nose and throat? Experts say that this allergy season is more intense than usual, dubbing as a “pollen tsunami,” especially in the Northeast. After a long, wet winter, seemingly everything blooms all at once. As beautiful as it is, but if you are sensitivity to pollen, you’re probably beginning to suffer about now.

Allergies are your immune system’s overreaction to pollens and other substances. While they’re not necessarily dangerous, but for those with asthma, allergies can trigger more serious reactions. If you are experiencing a lot of stress during allergy season, allergy symptoms can worsen. So anything that relieves stress will  help to reduce allergy symptoms along many of other health problems.

So before you reach for those over-the-counter antihistamines that will often leave you feeling drowsy, plus other unpleasant side effects, there’s a powerful and natural way to find relief – Reflexology. There are no invasive tools or medication used, other than the magic pressing of thumbs and fingers.

The Power of Foot Reflexology

Reflexology calms the nervous system and transports you to a state of deep rest and relaxation by stimulating reflex points on your feet, in addition to hands, face and ears. There are thousands of nerves in these four areas — 15,000 in your feet alone! This is why a reflexology session is so soothing and nurturing, leaving you feeling relaxed and energized which detoxifying your toxins from your body. While tension and stress is releasing, reflexology also supports every organs, glands and all body functions.

Here are some reflex points/areas on the feet that, when stimulated, will help you breathe easier. Using your thumb or index finger, simply press and hold for five seconds on each of these seven areas:

  • The sinuses (balls of the toes) open up clogged sinus cavities.
  • The pituitary or “master gland” (center of big toe) stimulates and balances hormone secretions of all other glands.
  • The thymus gland (upper inner edge of ball of foot) strengthens your immune system.
  • Your chest, lungs and bronchial (center of ball of foot) release congestion.
  • The solar plexus/diaphragm (under ball of foot at center) reduces stress and relaxes breathing.
  • Your adrenal glands (just above center of foot near inner edge) produce cortisone/cortisol to reduce inflammation. Adrenalin boosts your energy level, often depleted by allergy symptoms.
  • The ileocecal valve (lower outer edge of foot) regulates mucus production.
