Came across some published facts:
In 1993, the medical journal Obstetrics and Gynecology published the first research study confirming reflexology as a viable option in the treatment of pre-menstrual syndrome. Since that time, approximately 380 research studies that show the positive effects of reflexology for many other medical conditions have been studied, according to the American Academy of Reflexology.
Another study (November 2015 in the Journal of Complementary & Integrative Medicine) published “A comparison of the effects of reflexology and relaxation on pain in women with multiple sclerosis,” indicated that reflexology reduces pain more than relaxation alone.
I find this quite amazing — 380 research studies — all separately conducted & providing proof of the positive benefits of Reflexology.
