|Acupuncture for Sinus and Hayfever
Sinusitis is an inflammatory condition of the sinuses, which are small airspaces within the bones around the eyes, cheeks and forehead. When any of these cavities becomes inflamed, the drainage process is inhibited thus creating an ideal environment for congestion and infection, resulting finally in Sinusitis.
Sinusitis affects millions of Australians every year, generally resulting from reactions to allergens or cold and flu. There is no known cure for chronic sinusitis. Treatments such as antibiotics and antihistamines can help resolve a current infection, but there are no guarantees that the infection won’t return and over time this puts a burden on the immune system.
At Ambrosia we offer Acupuncture and Herbal treatment approaches for both chronic and acute sinusitis. Many of our patients find acupuncture to work wonders for immediately clearing the sinuses and relieving pain while herbs and dietary changes nourish the immune system and reduce the production of mucous.
Salt water irrigation of the sinuses with a Netti pot is a simple, yet very powerful, technique that you can use between visits that works wonders for chronic sinusitis and allergies. It has a remarkable effect on upper respiratory tract infections, especially hay fever. Neti pots are a gentle, safe, efficient way to deliver a good cleansing dose of saline to the nose and practiced on a daily basis help keep your sinuses clean and make your breathing free and easy. Netti Pots and instruction sheets are available at Ambrosia.
Manage your allergies as part of a comprehensive treatment program with Tania & Bartley.
We look forward to helping you feel more relaxed and pain free so call us today on 9665 4341 and book an appointment.
Massage for Pain and Stress Relief
Pain in the Back? Look to the Front!
Back pain affects about 8 out of 10 people. But there are many steps you can take to avoid it. One of the best things you can do to prevent back pain is to exercise regularly and keep your back and abdominal muscles strong.
So what causes back pain?
Naturally, accidents and sports injuries can be the cause of the pain, but a number of other factors can contribute to back pain, including:
· Poor posture
· Poor physical conditioning facilitated by inactivity.
· Psychological/emotional stress
· Internal disease, such as kidney stones, infections, blood clots
· Osteoporosis (bone loss)
Many people fail to realize that often pain actually originates from the opposite side of where it hurts. So if you are experiencing back pain, it might mean that the muscles directly opposite and to the front have tightened and shorted and is the cause of the pain.
Massage is a simple method that can help ease all sorts of pain.
For quick pointers on how to relieve back pain, please enquire at Ambrosia and book your remedial massage today with Patricia - Thr & Sun 8 am - 2 pm, by appointment only.
