The overall quality of the studies was low. Reflexology is considered to be a form of complementary and alternative medicine CAM.
CAM refers to treatments used either as an adjunct to, or instead of conventional medical care. The House of Lords Select Committee for Science and Technology [ 1 ] has placed reflexology in group two, categorised as therapies used mostly to complement conventional medicine. Its popularity has increased in recent years as the public seek more holistic ways to Sheffield massage prices in United Kingdom good health and well-being [ 2 ].
In fact CAM is increasingly being considered as a safe and effective way of reducing the causes and impacts of pain and disease.
While the general population is spending large sums of money on CAM, health care professionals are reluctant to promote any benefits for such treatments. Reflexology has come under much criticism based predominantly on the dearth of high quality evidence supporting a Dating tv show Keighley scientific mechanism of action for the treatment.
Most of the research carried out in this area has investigated the psychological outcomes from reflexology focusing on qualitative outcomes. Researchers have repeatedly shown that reflexology has a positive effect on quality of life, stress, anxiety, and pain [ 9 — 12 ].
However, few studies Sugar daddy dating sites Southampton attempted to correlate these with any quantitative physiological or biochemical outcomes. To date Mainstream massage Newtownabbey literature reviews of reflexology have been carried out [ 13 — 18 ] and three further reviews on reflexology for cancer care [ Great Yarmouth gay magazines ], pain and fatigue [ 2 ], and pain management [ 11 ] are also available.

Recent research has also indicated that changes in the Melanie Craigavon sexy layer structures and luminosity of the skin at specific reflex points on the feet may give rise to the changes felt by therapists during a treatment [ 23 ].

A commonly held belief, often cited by reflexologists and suggested by Poole et al.
