Reflexology has been shown to be effective in alleviating various symptoms.

According to the Reflexology Association of America; “Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary practice involving the use of alternating pressure applied to reflexes within reflex maps of the body located on the feet, hands and outer ears.”

In brief, reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort. In the absence of any particular malady or abnormality, it may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness
