Lu, C., "Foot massage Treatment of Multiple Cerebral Infarction: A Case Report." 1994 China Reflexology Symposium Report, Beijing : China Reflexology Association, page 11
A 46 yr old patient with multiple cerebral infarction (a sudden onset of headache, vertigo, slurred speech and numbness in left extremities) was stabilized after 2 months and discharged with some slurred speech, facial and lingual palsy, limb weakness and numbness. After four months, he was given foot reflexology daily for 10 days and regained normal speech and muscular strength after 2 sessions and returned to work after three sessions.
Foot reflexology was found to be effective for the relief of symptoms associated with multiple cerebral infarction.
