Reflexology for Thyroid – Massage Monday #425

Hi everyone. I am Yasuko and it’s time for Massage Monday. This week I’m going to show you the reflexology
for thyroid. Thyroid gland is a small butterfly-shaped
organ located below the Adam’s Apple. This hormone gland is responsible for growth,
metabolism and development of the human body. best foot massage machine You can massage these reflexes to promote
the thyroid health but this is not an alternative to your medical treatment. There are different versions of Reflexology
chart and one version shows the reflex of thyroid and parathyroid at the bottom of the
thumb. In this case, the thumb is the reflex for
the head and below is the neck and thyroid which makes sense. Other Reflexology charts show thyroid here
between the thumb and index finger and here below the thumb. So I’m going to massage all of them. You can use thumb walk technique to stimulate
these areas. Or friction. Or press the other thumb into it. When you do this, instead of just pressing,
bring the webbing towards you as you press to make it easier for the thumb. Even better, move the other hand too to help
the working thumb. You can also use the gravity. If you have a long finger nail, use the index
finger joint to stimulate. And use the gravity too when you know the
location. Repeat on the other hand. Now onto the foot. Again, there are different versions of Reflexology
chart. One shows thyroid and parathyroid at the base
of the big toe. The big toe is the head and the neck and thyroid
are underneath it. Another version shows thyroid around the big
bone under the big toe called sesamoid bone. Let’s massage both areas. Use thumb walk to massage the base of the
big toe. Or press and glide. Glide your thumb around the sesamoid bone. First sideways against the bone and upward. Put the other thumb for more support. Move your torso to save your thumbs. Again, if you have long fingernails, use the
index finger joint. When you learn the location, you can also
roll your foot on a golf ball. In a chart that has the thyroid located around
the sesamoid bone, plantar fasciitis foot massager, sometimes the parathyroid is shown on the outer edge of the sesamoid
bone. So, might as well massage that too. Just press with your thumb or both thumbs
next to each other for more support. Thanks for watching. I’ll see you back next week. Make it a great week. Feel free to comment below and please don’t
