Sinus pain and pressure (Rhinitis) can be very challenging and can cause facial pain, headaches, dizziness and the sensation of tooth pain. Sinus pain and pressure can be caused by allergies, bacteria, environmental conditions such as dust/pollution or even by structural defects within the sinuses themselves.
Some people find that using prescription or other over the counter medications doesn’t always work, or may only work short term. Acupuncture can be an effective treatment for sinus issues buy releasing any blockages in the sinuses and by supporting the immune system and our other organ of respiration, the lungs. If allergies or asthma are involved, acupuncture works to address these areas as well during the same treatments.
Often the patient feels the sinuses draining while in the midst of their treatment. We usually recommend at 4 to 6 treatments to see a good effect but this varies from patient to patient.
