Acupuncture for Sinus
Some general points for sinusitis are Bladder 7, Bladder 10, Governor Vessel 20, and GV 26. The third eye point also can be helpful. (GV 24.5)
Bladder 2, Drilling Bamboo, can work very well for sinus congestion in the forehead and for frontal headaches. It's "in the indentation of the inner eye socket where the bridge of the nose meets the ridge of the eyebrows." If this point needs to be worked, there may be a drilling-like sensation when it's pressed.
Large Intestine 20 (Welcoming Perfume) and Stomach 3 (Facial Beauty) can open up the maxillary sinuses (those in the cheeks).
In addition, Large Intestine 4 can be very useful in treating sinusitis. This one is forbidden for pregnant women. It's "in the webbing between the thumb and index finger, at the highest spot of the muscle when you bring the thumb and index finger close together."
Sometimes the sinus problems are caused by dampness and Spleen problems. In these cases acupoint Stomach 36 for strengthening the immune system and for allergies is also used.
