Title: The acute (immediate) specific haemodynamic effects of reflexology
Authors: Jones, Jenny
Supervisor(s): Leslie, Stephen
Keywords: Reflexology
Issue Date: 2012
Publisher: University of Stirling
Abstract: Reflexology is one of the top six complementary therapies used in the UK. Reflexologists claim that massage to specific points of the feet increases blood supply to referred or 'mapped' organs in the body. Empirical evidence to validate this claim is scarce. This three-phase RCT measured changes in haemodynamic parameters in subjects receiving reflexology treatment applied to specific areas of the foot which are thought to correspond to the heart (intervention) compared with reflexology applied to other areas on the foot which are not (control).
