REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is a technique that applies gentle pressure to your feet or hands to bring about a state of relaxation and help the body's own healing process. Reflexology works in a similar way to acupressure and acupuncture. It is thought that there are certain points on the feet and hands that correspond to the organs and glands in the body. So by pressing and massaging these points it can stimulate energy pathways in the body. If any energy pathways are blocked, reflexology aims to unblock them, allowing the energy to flow freely again which aims to restore balance to the body.
By pressing the points and working them gently, reflexologists believe that it will kickstart your body's natural healing powers. People with cancer must see reflexologists who have training or experience treating people with cancer. This is because there might be specific points on the feet that they need to avoid, or where they should only apply very gentle pressure.
Reflexology is one of the most popular types of complementary therapy in the UK among people with cancer.
There is some evidence that reflexology can help you to cope up with stress and anxiety, lighten your mood, relieve pain etc.
Although there is no scientific evidence to prove that reflexology can cure or prevent any type of disease, including cancer.
It is still a popular form of complementary therapy for people with cancer. Some studies have looked at using it to help with symptoms such as pain, sickness and anxiety.
It is difficult to see if reflexology has any effect for sure because:
there are mixed results
most studies have been small
some trials have not been well designed
it could be the attention of the therapist that helps people to feel relaxed, not the therapy itself.
