For the bridge, use your thumb and index finger and massage the bridge of your nose by repeatedly pinching it. As you do this, inhale slowly and imagine you are breathing in clean air; exhale slowly and imagine you are exhaling dirty air. Do this nine to thirty-six times. (Fig. 4.26) This is effective for blocked sinuses.
For the mid-nose, place your thumb and third finger or either side of your nose, right on the bone which runs perpendicular to the nose. Place your index finger on the bridge. Inhale and press in gently. Exhale and relax. (Fig. 4.27) Feel and absorb the heat from your fingers into the nose. This can increase your concentration and calm your mind.
5.Sides of the Nose
On the sides of the nose, use your index fingers, massage slowly and gradually- increase up and down the sides of your nose nine to thirty-six times. (Fig. 4.28) This also helps blocked sinuses and stuffy noses. Do not do it too hard in the beginning because the sensitive tissues there are very tender and easily infected. Rub the sides of your nose up and down until you feel warm; this will help you in the cold winter and every morning when you get up.
On the lower nose, massage slowly and gradually increase the pressure when you are sure you will not hurt yourself. Massage vigorously back and forth, using an index finger at a right angle to the nose immediately under it. (Fig. 4-29) This helps blocked sinuses and stuffy, runny noses.
