Here are three simple and easy steps to cure sinus infection at home.

 

First step

  • First of all sit very comfortably. Now, tilt a bit forward and form a 45 degree with your head and body.
  • Now turn your head sideways and locate the sternocleidomastoid muscle with your fingers and hand. (Muscle starting from right below your earlobes to your collarbone)
  • Once you have located the muscle. Massage it in downward directions for five times.
  • Repeat this massaging technique with other side of the neck.
  • The idea is to relax your neck.

 

Second step

  • Now, locate the hard bony part on the bridge of your nose.
  • Once you have located the hard bony part of the nose, locate the soft part of the nose. (It is right where the hard bony part ends)
  • Now, massage the area between the bony part and the soft part for 30 to 40 seconds in circular motion.
  • After this massage, use the tips of your index fingers to massage down the side of the nose approaching towards the cheekbones. This will not only relax your face but will also give you relieve from nasal discomfort during sinus infection.

 

Third step

  • Now, locate the orbit bone of eye. (The area above each eye)
  • Now, locate the orbital notch, which is located above the eyeball.
  • Now, with your index fingers massage in circular motion with mild preesure on the notch. Massage for 20 to 30 Seconds.
  • One final step, massage the center of the forehead, in circular motion.
