Reflexology For Reducing Anxiety

afranolic5A study undertaken at Anglia Ruskin University in the U.K., published in “Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice” in August 2007, examined the effectiveness of reflexology in a hospital / healthcare setting, with some participants undergoing reflexology and a control group receiving no treatment.

The research determined that reflexology in this type of setting strongly reduced anxiety. The report ultimately concluded that, given the recognized connection between stress and well-being, the ability of reflexology to lessen stress may prove beneficial for patients.
