Energy Technique for Draining the Sinuses

Does Spring time weather have your sinuses congested?  Use the Cheekbone Press to release tension, drain the sinuses, and clear the lymph glands in the neck.
  • Place the pads of your fingers beneath you cheekbones, next to your nose.
  • Apply pressure in and up.  Hold about 15 seconds while breathing slowly, in through your nose, out through your mouth.
  • Continuing to press in, drag your fingers up toward the openings of your ears, pull them down the side of your neck, and finally drop your arms and relax.


  1. Another great technique to combine with this is to press into the side/ base of the nostrils (flare of the nose at the end of Large Intestine Meridian)... with the index fingernails or pads of fingers for about 1-2 minutes or until you can breathe more clearly.
