Does Reflexology Benefit Those With Multiple Sclerosis?

hands and feetReflexology is a revival of an ancient therapy discovered and developed by the Chinese 5000 years ago. It was practiced in the Middle East by the ancient Egyptians who respected it as a curative therapy.

In the 1930’s an American physiotherapist, Eunice Ingram introduced reflexology to America. The principle of this therapy is scientific in that by giving deep, controled compression with the thumb to reflex points on the feet, hands or ears, corresponding to certain parts of the body tensions and blockages are released, allowing the free flow of vital energies and helping the body to heal itself.

There are two Certified Reflexologists offering services at the Oneida Holistic Health Center. They both offer offsite programs. The Oneida Center is located on historic Route 66  in Marlborough, CT.  We are just a short distance from Hartford, East Hampton, Glastonbury, Old Saybrook, Groten and Wethersfield. The National Institute of Health conducted a study on whether or not Reflexology could benefit those with Multiple Sclerosis. The study can be read by following this link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12926840
