Wu, Z., "Experience in 10 Cases of Dysmenstruation Treated with Foot Reflexology." 1996 China Reflexology Symposium Report. Beijing : China Reflexology Association, pages 64-65
10 women, ages 17-26, with dysmenstruation, were given 5-10 minutes only of foot reflexology. Three had previously been given western or Chinese therapies without success. They did not have time for whole foot; therefore, they focused on the pituitary gland, lower abdomen, sex glands, uterus and adrenal glands reflex zones and experienced an analgesic effect very quickly.
Foot reflexology was found to be effective for the relief of dysmenstruation.
