  A 1992 study from Ferrell-Torry and Glick. 87 patients with cancer were given 10 minutes of foot reflexology which produced an immediate relief of pain, nausea and anxiety. Because of the positive results, it was recommended to use a greater number of patients in a controlled clinical study.

Conclusion:

 
 

Foot reflexology was found to be effective for the relief of pain and nausea associated with cancer treatments.
