The most common use for Yintang in modern acupuncture clinics is to calm the mind.
Yintang, whose English translation is Hall of Impression, is its own entity. It’s a single point located between the eyebrows, just below the area known as the third eye (see above).
People suffering from stuffiness, post-nasal drip, sinus congestion and nosebleeds are likely candidates for Yintang. The point also is used for eye disorders as well as frontal headaches, dizziness and vertigo.
To apply acupressure to Yin Tang, bring the first and middle fingers of your two hands together, using the ends of those four fingers, very gently, in a circular motion, massage the area between the inner ends of your two eyebrows. The motion can be either clockwise or counter-clockwise (find out which intuitively feels best to you). Massage 20-30 times. As you apply that circular acupressure/massage, allow all the muscles of your forehead to soften and relax (saying "ahh" can be useful here), as though they were releasing backward, in the direction of the center of your skull (the upper dantian area).
2. Yingxiang (LI 20)
Rest the whorled section of the middle or index fingers on Yingxiang (LI 20) on both sides of the nostrils. Press-knead 20-30 times firmly to get the sensation of soreness.
3. The side of the nose
Rub both sides of the nose with the side of the index fingers, moving upward and downward 20-30 times to get the sensation of heat.
4. Juliao (S 3) — The center of the cheek.
In the area located directly under the eyes and to the sides of the nostrils (between the cheekbone and the root of the upper teeth), press down firmly with the middle fingers and make circular movements 20-30 times.
Give the massage a try. It doesn’t cost you anything and you will immediately experience the result and the relief.

Acupressure and Essential Oils for Sinus Headaches and Sinusitis
As pressure from sinus congestion builds, sinus headaches can occur. For immediate relief of sinus headache pain many pure essential oils are effective at opening the sinuses and reducing the pressure; applying them over the sinuses and at the temples can give immediate pain relief; they must be diluted so not to burn the skin. Typical essentials oils for a sinus headache include diluted eucalyptus, peppermint, wintergreen, and lavender. Acupressure is also effective at reducing the sinus pressure involved with sinus headaches. An acupressure point which is highly effective and is used widely for nose congestion is Bitong, meaning "opening up the nose." Those with sinus problems can massage this point regularly. The Bitong acupressure points are next to the bridge of your nose. Briskly rub your hands together to warm them and charge them with energy. Close your eyes and use the tip of your middle fingers to rub up and down between the area next to your nostrils and the corner of your eyes. Focus on the area you're rubbing. Don't worry about finding the exact acupressure points - simply rubbing along the full length of the edge of your nose will cover the right area.
But the kicker is the addition of animal glandulars such as thymus (the home of white blood cells) to help kick start our own white blood cell production. BOOM!
Astragalus is a great Lung Qi tonic and you should definitely give it a try. Regular use of Ginseng can help protect the spleen and lungs.
Deep breathing can help release sinus pressure and it aids the oxygenation of every cell.
