How to clear those blocked sinuses in a couple of minutes
While the video will give you visual instructions, here is the written version.
1. While sitting with your head and body at about a forty five degree angle, turn your head sideways and rub your sternocleidomastoid muscle downward four or five times. Wondering where that muscle is? You can find it beneath your ear running down your neck to your collarbone. Do this exercise on both sides to help relax your neck.
2. Take your index fingers, locate the hard, bony part of the upper sides of your nose, and move downward toward the soft part on the side of your nose where the bone ends. Begin massaging this area in a circular motion with as much pressure as you can for about twenty seconds. Once completed, rub the muscles from the side of your nose down and toward your cheekbones to relax them.
3. Take your index fingers and run them under the inside orbit bone above your eyes until you find a notch in the bone called the super orbital notch. It is usually just above the centre of the eye. Massage that notch in a circular motion with as much pressure as you can handle for about twenty seconds. Once done, massage your forehead with both hands starting in the centre and pulling outwards towards your temples.
Worth persevering for relief in the sinuses, enabling you to blow your nose much more easily. Repeat the process when needed.
