Shiatsu originating from Japan has been used
for centuries to treat the energy system in the body for health and wellness. Hi my name
is Christina Bjergo I’m a Shiatsu Japanese massage practitioner. So here is how you can
apply Shiatsu for sinus headaches. Sinuses below pressure or pain below the eyes, go
along the pupil line about half an inch to an inch and just apply pressure where it feels
like it’s relieving little circles are good just to get some movement. Sinus tension can also build up in the forehead
so often just at the beginning of the eyebrows is a good place to also apply some Shiatsu
techniques of pressure.
As well as the center line of the between the eyebrows. And since we also want to encourage the downward
draining of any pressure we want to also massage a little bit of Shiatsu pressure in the back
of the neck, just kind of a downward pressure starting at the base of the occiput, and moving
down to the shoulders. Another really good point to help the immune system fight sinuses
is go using your leg just below the kneecap on the lateral side of the bone, using a loose
fist we’re going to just kind of apply nice pressure. This is strengthening the body’s
immune system and ability to fight off any sinus infections. These are just a few Shiatsu
techniques you can apply at home to treat sinus headaches.
