“Balancing Your Thyroid with Acupressure” What exactly does that mean? Just Say NO Thank You!
Acupressure points on your neck to “balance your thyroid”
If you know the right acupressure points, you can cure a number of health problems on your own. From balancing thyroid gland to managing stress and anxiety, these points also help in regulating blood circulation and treating hormonal imbalances.
Pressing these points can help balance the thyroid gland along with relieving neck tension. Bring your right hand over to the right side. Rub and feel the ropey muscle that runs parallel to your spine. Curve your fingers and hook onto the point. Take deep breath. Now take both your hands. Your right hand will hold your right side of your neck and left hand, left side of the neck. Curve your fingers and hook the weight of your arms into the points fingers curved.
Comments: Neck area is very sensitive to any type of pressure. Patients with enlarged thyroid glands called goiter can develop a painful traumatic thyroiditis. Massage, acupressure, seat belt, any choking moves, and my recnt case with trauma from a violin pressed up against the thyroid of a patient with a goiter. Do not let anyone touch your neck and even the patient must refrain from obsessive feeling the neck. Also Medical student traumatic thyroiditis occurs when the whole class feels the neck of a fellow student with a nodule.
