Does Foot Reflexology Really Work?

We’ve recently tapped in to a great resource that lends information, based on 4 major medical databases, on the alternative therapies you are wondering about. Here’s what we learned about foot reflexology, via Spaevidence.com:

  • A California Graduate Institute (US) randomized controlled trial showed foot reflexology significantly reduced premenstrual symptoms.

  • A randomized control trial at a Taiwanese hospital concluded foot reflexology considerably improved sleep quality for postpartum women.

  • An Inje University (Korea) study revealed foot reflexology massage was effective in reducing depression and stress, and strengthening the immune systems, of middle-aged women.
