A stuffy nose can be really annoying and can be a really tiring thing to deal with, but you can actually use your fingers to clear your sinuses. That’s right, fingers. The method is a massage that can drain your lymph and relieve allergies and cold congestion.
This massage is going to make your lymphatic system thank you because you are going to help it and the body get rid of wastes and toxins and allow circulation of lymph throughout the body. A compromised lymphatic system means compromised health.
However, you should be careful not to perform this massage on yourself if you have heart disease, are pregnant, have circulatory problems, active bleeding, or a fever. Now after getting that out of the way, make sure to follow the steps carefully.
How to properly massage yourself
Start by locating your collar bones using your ring fingers, then cup your fingers right above the collar bones and start pressing gently again and again until you successfully pump 50 to 100 pumps (you can cross your hands if you can’t do it comfortably). Now, open your fingers and start pulling down your neck lightly for 50 to 100 pumps. Once done, cup your hands and start pumping the back of your neck for 50 to 100 pumps
Now create a V-shape with your hand like the Vulcan salute in the Star Trek movies and massage around your ears for 50 to 100 pumps, then remassage the back of your neck followed by neck sides massage. Once done, remassage the base of your neck and you’re done.
