Traditional diagnostic patterns for sinusitis are wind-cold, wind-heat, lung-heat and damp-phlegm that block the nose. The cause of the stagnation of wind, damp and phlegm is usually due to a spleen deficiency and a deficiency in vital energy on the background causing the wind-heat or wind-cold to invade the lungs. When the lungs are unable to disperse and descend the energy the nose gets blocked.


Acupuncture is considered the best treatment to cure sinusitis in China. Our acupuncture clinic in Manchester will use acupuncture to restore the lung energy, to open up the nasal passages and sinuses as well as resolve the damp-phlegm which will bring a normal breathing.
