Sinusitis is a condition when the paranasal sinuses become inflamed, causing headaches, tightness of the facial muscles and increased production (and discharge) of mucus. Other symptoms include dizziness and the feeling of a “heavy head,” both of which are the results of congested (or blocked) sinus and other nasal passages. Sinusitis is either classified as acute (less than four weeks) or chronic (eight weeks or longer).
Because the viral infection is usually to blame, the virus usually resolves itself without requiring any medication. Treatment consists of relieving the symptoms and not the virus itself. However in the case of allergies, the course of treatment depends on multiple factors, including the type of allergy, the patient’s overall health and also eliminating or avoiding certain environmental factors (think mold, dust, extra dander, and extra pollen). Food allergies play a subtle role in increasing the incidence of sinus symptoms.
Acupuncture is helpful in giving immediate relief of the symptoms, as well as treating underlying factors. We take a complete history to understand all the body systems. Point sites will be local for the immediate relief, and also other places determined by your history, as well as tongue and pulse diagnosis. The headache and stuffiness you may have will be relieved immediately. A few treatments will be a great help. We will look at deeper underlying issues, as well.
Overnight I Woke Up Clear-Headed
“I came to Ingri to treat my allergy/ sinus condition which I had suffered with for many months. Literally overnight, I woke up clear-headed and no feelings of allergies or sinus symptoms. I am a believer and Ingri is a miracle worker” — M. Singlak, Newtown, CT
After One Treatment I felt Great
“I have had a sinus and ear infection which created pressure in my ears and dizziness. It was quite severe, as I could not even exercise for two weeks. After one treatment with acupuncture, the next day I went from feeling like my head was under water, to feeling great. The next day I was able to go for a walk, run, and do a modified weight training session. It was an awesome improvement!” — T. M., Southbury, CT
Sinus Headaches Gone After One Treatment
“Ingri is incredibly knowledgeable as well as great at the “hands-on” aspect of acupuncture. I went to her because I was having an ongoing issue with sinus headaches. After Ingri gave me just one acupuncture treatment, they completely disappeared. I highly recommend Ingri. She can definitely help with problems resulting from sudden trauma as well as chronic issues.” — J. Klem, CT
My Sinus and Postnasal Drip All But Ceased Immediately
“I couldn’t believe the relief that I got from a persistent cough caused by bronchitis. My sinus and postnasal drip all but ceased immediately and didn’t return until shortly before my second visit. On the way to good health!” — Brenda, Norwalk, CT
