Congestion Relief with Reflexology

reflexology on toes
So many people seem to have stuffy sinuses due to colds, flu and allergies right now. I know my daughter does.  There is a natural way to get some relief...... it's reflexology. I have used it many times on my kids when they were just little ones and couldn't sleep due to sinus and nasal congestion.

Reflexology is a type of massage that uses reflex points on the feet or hands to help correct problems within the body. The reflex points for the sinuses happen to be on the tips of the toes.  Use your thumb to apply pressure to the tips of the toes massaging in tiny little circles.


Concentrate on each toe for about 2 minutes.  Intensify the reflex effect by adding a drop of peppermint essential oil distributed to all the toes before the massage. It smells wonderful and is a great natural decongestant.


It may sound a little crazy, but it does work for many people. I have had clients say they feel the effect while I am giving them a foot massage during their pedicure. I know it always helped my sick children get to sleep. Give it a try!



Have a Beautiful Day!
