Tips from Dr. Chan – Sinus Congestion Acupressure Point

Sinus Congestion Acupressure Point

Yingxiang (English translation: Welcome Fragrance) Point (aka Large Intestine-20 (LI-20)): You can use this when you are feeling sinus congestion (whether you are getting sick or suffering from allergies.) This helps clear nasal congestion and can help with an itchy face.

This point is on the side of the nose.  Place your index fingers and press down so you feel pressure but not pain.  Hold this pressure for at least 30 seconds and repeat as often as needed.
