Gong, X., "Treatment for Headache with Faradotherapy Applied to Foot Reflexes of the Adrenal Gland and Cerebrum." 1996 China Reflexology Symposium Report, Beijing : China Reflexology Association, pages 144-145.


  17 patients, both male and female ages 40-60, with many different types of headaches such as frontotemperal neuralgia, cervicooccipital neuralgia, supraorbital neuralgia, neurotic headache, vascular headache, migraine, and anemic headache were given 20 minutes of foot reflexology for 12 days. Also, electrodes that were placed on the adrenal glands and the cerebrum reflexes of both sides of the feet from a galvanofaradism apparatus. After 3-10 sessions, ten patients had not more symptoms; 2 patients had significant improvement after 15-16 sessions; and 5 patients improved after 3-5 sessions.



Headaches were treated satisfactorily with the electrical stimulation of the cerebrum reflex points located on the foot. This was not a true foot reflexology study.
