  A 36 yr old female with subacute lupus erythematosus. Her symptoms included dry mouth, cracked lips, low fever, erythema with itching, stabbing pain and burning sensation when exposed to sunlight, severe hair loss, congested retina, hand arthralgia, gastric ulceration and irregular menstruation. She was misdiagnosed at first with allergic solar dermatitis and after 4 years of unsuccessful conventional theraphy, she was given foot reflexology. The first session consisted of an overall massage to all areas of her feet and water consumption. The third treatment focused on key reflex areas and her condition got worse before and during menstruation. After 4 months of treatment (6 days per week), patient was doing very well.


  Foot reflexology was found to be effective for the relief of symptoms associated with Lupus Erythematosus.
