This complementary therapy is also known as zone healing.
During a session, pressure is applied to specific ‘reflex’ points, which correspond to different organs of the body.
It is thought to help alleviate anxiety and relieve stress. Reflexology can also help relieve symptoms of pain from certain medical conditions.
It is thought that having less stress may be a reason people with certain medical conditions feel less pain. So, if reflexology can help lower your stress levels, you may find you also benefit from reduced pain.
Whilst more research is needed into the direct impact reflexology may have on particular conditions, evidence so far suggests it can exert a positive effect on arthritis pain, fatigue and other symptoms of multiple sclerosis, as well as improving back pain and easing constipation.
