As the headline sponsor of Chamberlain Dunn’s Complementary Therapy Awards, the FHT has been invited to put forward industry experts to promote the health benefits of complementary therapy on UK Health Radio.

This week, tune in and hear FHT Excellence Award Winner (2014), Dr Carol Samuel, FFHT, talk to Dr Vijay Murthy about the potential role of reflexology in pain management on his popular radio show, Unlock Your Health.

As part of her PhD, Carol carried out research into the effects of reflexology on pain. The results of her exploratory study, published in Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice, indicated that reflexology increased acute pain threshold and tolerance.

The interview will be aired at 2am this Wednesday on UK Health Radio – but don’t worry if you’ll be tucked up in bed! The interview will be repeated throughout the week at different times each day and then made available on demand, on Dr Vijay Murphy’s webpage

Enjoy listening and please share this news item with fellow therapists and reflexology fans!
