A sore throat, stuffy nose, and pain around your eyes and face can indicate that your common cold has turned into sinusitis. Sinusitis, also referred to as a sinus infection, occurs when your sinuses become blocked with mucus, thus allowing bacteria to accumulate inside of them.
In the video below, Heather Wibbels demonstrates how to give a lymph drainage massage. This lymph drainage massage technique helps relieve congestion from colds and allergies. In addition, Wibbels points out that the pressure in your head could be triggered by a lymphatic fluid build-up in your head. However, this gentle massage helps drain your head, and open the lymph nodes behind your ears and in your neck.
Moreover, your lymphatic system helps trap and get rid of toxins. Unlike your cardiovascular system, your lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump to stimulate fluid movement. The movement of your body plays a role in preventing toxin stagnation in your lymph.

Interestingly, whatever keeps us alive, can also threaten our existence, similarly sinuses can put us through a hell lot of trouble if we aren’t careful.
One cause of sinus infections is a result of bacterial invasion within one or more of the sinus cavities. Any bacteria that enter the nasal passages and sinus cavities through the air that is inhaled are trapped by the mucus secreted by the mucous membranes surrounding these areas. These trapped particles can cause an irritation to these linings resulting in swelling and inflammation.
Certain abnormalities or trauma related injuries to the nasal cavity can make it difficult for effective drainage of mucus from the sinus cavit… Read the rest
