18 patients with chronic spinal cord, stomach and neuro-musculo-skeletal dysfunctions were given foot reflexology. They also tested their glucose, cholesterol and acidity level. The researcher concluded that the reflex areas of the spine, ears, and the pituitary should not be stimulated when working on a spinal injury or spinal surgery patient.
Foot reflexology was found to be effective for the relief of spinal cord, stomach, and neuro-musclo-skeletal disorders.
