Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD) for Sinus Pain and Problems

The American Rhinologic Society estimates 35 million American are affected by chronic sinusitis.
MLD is the slow rhythmic application of very light pressure on and around the affected area that is to be treated.  Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage can relieve many of the following symptoms of sinus problems:

  • Headache    

  • Watery eyes  

  • Stuffiness and chronic congestion

  • Sore throat 

  • Ear aches  

  • Pressure

For those suffering with sinus infections MLD can aid in the removal of much of the congestive material, stimulating movement of lymphatic fluid and aiding  in the thinning of mucus.  Certain allergens can trigger the release of histamine which causes inflammation and excess fluid production of the nose and sinuses.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage concentrates on specific lymph node regions to enhance and stimulate lymphatic flow.  If you suffer from chronic sinus congestion or sinus infections consider MLD to relieve these symptoms. We have had excellent results for those who have tried endless rounds of medications.
