With fall in full swing, it’s important to support your immune system, especially when it comes to sinus pressure. So we spoke with Joomee Song, the Los Angeles-based esthetician and consultant, who shared how to soothe and calm your nasal passages.
Joomee is best known for her signature Kaika Facial Massage, which combines an ancient form of Japanese deep facial massage to lift, tone, and detoxify the skin. She also utilizes a chiropractic Shiatsu technique that realigns facial structure.
So without further ado, here, Joomee breaks down her best tips to relieve sinus pressure.
Kaika Facial Massage
A note from Joomee: It is very important with KAIKA to press while you inhale and release while you exhale.
Use 3 fingers to press the sinus area firmly 3 times, taking 3 deep breaths.
Place 2 knuckles or 3 fingers alongside of your nose and press upward 3 times with 3 deep breaths.
Find the edge of your cheekbones, press outward using the same knuckles or 3 fingers 3 times, taking 3 deep breaths.
