Thymus Gland – What to know:
The thymus gland, located behind your sternum and between your lungs, produces T cells during puberty, but becomes inactive in adulthood. Though its ability to “train” T cells to fight infections and cancer last for a lifetime. Stimulating this gland plays an important roll in boosting both the immune and endocrine system.
Thymus Thump How-To:
Curl your fingers into loose fists (thumbs on top) and gently tap the center of the breast bone slightly below where the collar bones meet at the sternum.
Tap the hands gently back and forth relaxing the muscles of the face and shoulders and focusing your awareness on your breath, for 3-5 slow, deep inhales and passive, audible exhales… Ahhhhhh. These audible exhales automatically stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system which restores our body to a state of calm. Take a moment to notice your body relaxing after each breath.
