Study Conducted:



  China   Hospital of Beijing Linguistic College  



Gao, Z., "Treatment of Chloasma with Combined Foot and Facial Massage." 1996 China Reflexology Symposium Report. Beijing : China Reflexology Association, pages 80-82.


  12 patients, ages 25-40, with history of chlaosma for 1-12 years were given 20 minutes each of foot reflexology and facial massage. In 8 cases, after 10-30 sessions, the lesion were almost gone and the skin appeared normal. In 3 cases, the pigment lightened and the central area was somewhat normal, but still had discernable contour. In 1 case, the lesion was not changed, but after 10 sessions of both foot reflexology and facial massage, the lesion began to resolve. After 30 sessions, the lesion on the forehead disappeared. The lesion on the cheeks returned to nearly normal color. Nine months after the sessions were stopped, there was no relapses.



Foot reflexology was found to be effective for the relief of chloasma.
