Several bones of the face contain spaces with openings to the nasal passages. Overproduction of nasal mucus and poor drainage to the throat can block the sinus openings. The sinuses become susceptible to bacterial proliferation, resulting in congestion. Congestion can cause pain below, between, above or behind the eyes, as well as headache pain at other sites like the top of the head. Acupuncture can relieve congestion of the nasal and sinus spaces by stimulating fluid drainage and regulating mucus secretions, improving the efficacy of your body’s internal immune processes in resolving infections in the upper airways
