World Reflexology Week - What does the research say...
One large review by Kunz and Kunz (2008) summarised 168 research studies and abstracts from around the world. Based on the studies they reviewed, Kunz and Kunz concluded that reflexology may:
* Have an impact on specific organs (e.g., fMRI readings demonstrated an increase in blood flow to kidneys and to the intestines)
* Be associated with an amelioration of symptoms (e.g., positive changes were noted in kidney functioning with kidney dialysis patients)
* Create a relaxation effect (e.g., EEGs measure alpha and theta waves, blood pressure was decreased, and anxiety was lowered)
* Aid in pain reduction (27 studies demonstrated a positive outcome for reduction in pain; e.g., chest pain, peripheral neuropathy of diabetes mellitus, kidney stones, and osteoarthritis)
