|Abstract:||Background: Reflexology texts are inconsistent with regard to the location of the heart point and contradictory with regard to the correct reflexology approach to cardiac patients.We aimed to determine the impact of these inconsistencies on the practice of Association of Reflexologists (AoR) members. Method: Online survey of AoR members. Results: Respondents' beliefs and practises mirror the inconsistencies in reflexology teaching literature and marked inconsistencies exist in the heart reflex point placement. Conclusions: Professional clarification around the heart reflex point location and further clinical research is urgently needed to establish the appropriateness of reflexology techniques for cardiac patients.|
