REFLEXOLOGY

Feet – the key to good health?

Reflexologists believe that the body is divided into 10 zones or channels of energy and that these channels come to an end in the hands and feet. Because of this, reflexologists think the hands and feet act like mirrors that reflect the health status of each part of the body. And so, to help heal different parts of the body, reflexologists apply pressure to specific points in the hands and feet.

Does it work?

Although there’s very little research to support reflexology, some studies have shown it can have an effect. For instance, in a reflexology and pre-menstrual syndrome research study (conducted in 1992), reflexology was found to help relieve premenstrual syndrome. And in [1993] a report by the Society of Orthopaedic Nursing and the Royal College of Nursing, showed that reflexology helped relieve pain in post-operative patients.
