Reflexology and the Hospital Setting
Updated: Aug 1
Reflexology reduces pain by 50 % with continued decrease in pain 4 hours after the session! Reported by patients in a research study done by Kent Hospital 2001.
While working on the oncology and women's care units, one patient preferred reflexology over morphine after having her lymph nodes removed. "It works and with no side effects" while some medication has possible side effects. According to studies, 83% of patients would use reflexology again in their aftercare treatment.
