Reflexology is a popular holistic therapy that improves general health as well as relieving stress and pain in other parts of the body.
The principle of Reflexology is that each reflex point of the feet and hands acts as a map that corresponds to a particular organ in the body. The stimulating 7000 nerves and the 26 bones in the feet help release blockages and re-balance the energy flow in the body. This brings the body back into its natural equilibrium which promotes the body’s natural healing power. This is because the body contains an energy field, an invisible life force, or Qi, the blockage of which can prevent healing.
Reflexologists claim that rubbing the soles of your feet can help you with medical conditions ranging from back pain to infertility.
“How can we be certain that this treatment is actually efficacious and that it’s not just the placebo effect?”
Science delivers the best understanding which our cognitive capacity can achieve at the time of the research. The Knowledge gained by scientists at that time is never in any sense complete or final and all findings await a greater cognitive capacity. Some prejudices still surround complementary therapies making the subject contentious because of the lack of medical evidence and current western medical understanding.
There is not an enormous amount of research regarding complementary therapies in comparison to main stream medical treatments, this is may be partly due to lack of funding opportunities and bias against complementary therapies at both a funding and publication level.
