Our own Naomi Neustadt, LMT describes her Sinus Drainage Treatment and how it brings relief to those suffering from allergies:

“If you are like me, you may be suffering right now from itchy eyes, runny nose and maybe even a sinus headache. It can really put a damper on whatever newest beautiful flora is beginning to bloom. We have waited so many months for the sun to shine and get back outside and now getting outside may actually make us feel tired and run down.

Let’s back up for a moment….what are the sinuses? And what do they have to do with seasonal allergies?

A sinus is a hollow space or cavity. There are four pairs of sinuses in our skull that open up into the nose (they are called the paranasal sinuses). Like the nasal cavity, the sinuses secrete mucus. Some mucus is a normal function of the nose and sinuses, it helps keep the cavities moist and flushes out any foreign particles that we may inhale.

Allergies can cause the sinuses to become inflamed, which in turn causes an increase in mucus secretions. The increased mucus can cause air to become trapped in the sinus cavities and passageways. If the sinuses become so swollen and clogged that air cannot enter, we get symptoms we often describe as a sinus headache.

So the big question remains, HOW DO I FEEL BETTER?

One thing most of us understand is that drainage is key. There are many suggestions on how to achieve this relief.  I have had great success working with clients who suffer from seasonal allergies and chronic sinusitis. This specialized treatment includes a unique combination of basic manual lymph drainage of the neck, myofascial release techniques and craniosacral therapy focused on the sinuses and nasal passageways.

Here is what you can expect when you book this treatment:

During this treatment you will lay face up. Naomi will begin with gentle craniosacral techniques at the clavicle and head. Next the very soft, yet effective manual lymph drainage will start at the base of your neck and methodically move to your jaw and ear. Now that your body is relaxed and the lymph has been encouraged to drain in your neck, the focus will begin on the paranasal sinuses using craniosacral techniques to release the pressure on these cranial bones.”

The treatment takes 30 minutes. It can be booked on its own ($50) or added on to a massage therapy session ($40).
