Sinuses are air-filled cavities present in the skull bone. If the skull bone were solid, its weight would have been so much as would make even lifting of the head difficult. Thus, sinuses are Nature's means of rendering the skull light-weighted.

Sinuses communicate with the nose through tiny openings. Therefore, a nasal infection sometimes spreads to one or more sinuses, causing a swelling of their inner surfaces. This is termed sinusitis.

Symptoms of sinusitis include-

1. Pain in the forehead (in case of frontal sinusitis) or in the cheek (in case of maxillary sinusitis). This pain, which is quite severe, is made worse by stooping, moving the head or coughing. Moreover, it may radiate into the ear, the eye or the teeth.

2. A visible swelling of the skin overlying the concerned sinus. Reflex Zone Therapy :

(A) General treatment of the entire body : Start with general treatment as described on page 33.

(B) Specific treatment of the sinuses : The sinuses are represented on the upper surfaces of all toes as shown in the adjoining diagram.

Place the left foot on the right thigh. With the thumb and the index finger, pinch each toe and press in an alternating manner for about a minute. Then, reverse the positions of the legs and similarly stimulate the trigger areas for the sinuses on the right foot.

Repeat this treatment twice a day.

(C) For very severe pain : Tie small rubber-bands on the two big toes (or all toes) for 10-12 minutes. During this period, if a toe starts paining or turns black, remove the concerned band for a while (till the normal colour returns) and then reapply it. If necessary, repeat after an hour.
