The thyroid, located just below the Adam’s Apple, supports a wide range of functions – from controlling our weight, heart rate, cholesterol, muscle strength and skin conditions to our vision, and even our emotional health. Obviously, a healthy thyroid is vital for total health! Whether you are dealing with hyperthyroidism (over active) or hypothyroidism (under active), research studies have proven that reflexology is an excellent treatment method for dealing with thyroid gland issues. By manipulating certain reflex points on the hands and feet, it is possible to calm or stimulate the activity of the thyroid, bringing relief from symptoms on either end of the spectrum. A trained reflexologist can provide a wonderful, all natural therapy for finding and maintaining balance within your body.
