Citations for over Three Hundred Reflexology Case & Research Studies from Around the World


Dear Reader,

Starting in 1991, as I traveled around the world teaching the Integration of Foot Hand Ear Reflexology to veteran Foot Reflexologists, in city after city and country after country, the most frequent question asked was, "Where can we find out about Reflexology Research Studies from around the world?" No such list existed.

So I determined to gather all studies, compile a comprehensive list, and make that list available at no charge, to anyone in the world who might be interested. It was a fascinating journey of discovery that lead to the list provided for you below. For your convenience, the citation for each study has been arranged alphabetically by types of study. Most people will find the section on "Outcome Studies" of greatest interest. We trust you find the list of value.

- Bill Flocco.

 

Here is an example of what you will find in the citation for each study.

Eleven Different Types of Research Studies

As you look through the list of Study Topics, you will notice that they are divided into eleven different Categories of studies. Each category is described at the beginning of the section for that type of study.

Different Terms Meaning Reflexology

As the practice of Reflexology has spread from the USA to other parts of the world, a variety of different terms have been used to refer to the practice of Reflexology. You will see many such terms used in the titles of the studies that follow. All mean the same thing, Reflexology.

1. Outcome Studies

Show the effectiveness of reflexology for a given condition, such as headaches, asthma, PMS, etc. Most reflexology research studies are Outcome Studies.
