Legs And Feet Pressure Points

Like the arms and hands the legs and feet have their own sinus pressure points, or rather, pressure points that when pressed, have positive effects on sinus conditions.

1. The Toes

These points are located on the tips of the toes. Just like the fingers, squeeze the toe tips one by one. It doesn’t need to be for a hugely long time. Some people will say to do it clockwise or anti clockwise or start with the left or right. As far as I’m concerned, you can do it as feels best for you and you will learn what works best for you.

These points, when pressed, help the sinuses to drain also over time can aid in the prevention of sinus infection.

2. The Toe Nails

You can see that the points are on the outside of the toenails. The big toe has points on both the outside and inside of the nail.

There are a number of points on the toe nails that act as pressure points and when pressed will improve circulation in the sinus regions and help to unclog and drain sinuses. These points should be pressed lightly. Again some say to do it clockwise and left then right and vice versa, but gently applied pressure to these points will do the trick.

3. Balls Of The Feet

The balls of the feet are fantastic points for helping to drain the inner and middle ear and clear blocked eustachian tubes, which has been the bane of my existence for going on three years. Massage the balls of the feet, or better yet, have someone else do it regularly and you’ll feel your ears draining much better.

4. The Upper Outside Shin

You can see the line of the shin bone in red. At the top, you will feel the bone move outwards and there is a little hollow in the corner. Press there.

This is a little tricky to explain. Move from your knee cap downwards. You will feel the top of your shin bone. Move a little further down on the outside of your shin. this will be on the left side of your shin on your left leg and on the right of your right leg. Try to feel for the point where your shin first meets the muscle that raises when you tilt your foot upwards. There is a corner at the top of the outside of your shin. Press that point. It will likely be a lot more tender than the points around it. This is a vital pressure point and sinus conditions are just one of its many uses.

It’s great for all things sinus, improving circulation throughout the sinuses and ears and generally improving respiratory health in general.
