Chinese medicine – How to clear stuffy nose yourself using acupuncture points

A stuffy nose, or nasal congestion is caused by inflamed blood vessels inside of the nostrils. When the tissues swell, it blocks the normal passage of air through the nose. It is a very uncomfortable condition. However, if you learn some simple acupressure technique, you can easily clear it yourself.

You only need to know one pair of acupuncture points called Ying-xiang points on both sides of your nose (see figure below) for this purpose.

Direction: keep pressing on both of the points with fingers for 1 to 2 minutes, give some pressure as long as you can tolerate. If you can lie on your side while pressing the Qing-xiang points, you will see quicker result. Clear your right side of the nose by lying on your left side, clear your left side of the nose by lying on your right side.

Beside, pressing Ying-xiang points can also stop nose bleeding, relieve tooth pain etc. It is a very useful acupressure point.
