Reflexology researcher to speak at 2018 FHT Conference

Conference Julie McCulloughWe’re delighted to have Dr Julie McCullough join us as a speaker at the 2018 FHT Conference.

Dr McCullough is a research associate at Ulster University and has been a complementary therapist for the past 12 years. She has a degree in human nutrition and completed her PhD at Ulster University in 2015.

As part of her PhD, Dr McCullough joined scientists investigating the impact of antenatal reflexology on women experiencing stress caused by pregnancy-related low back and/or pelvic girdle pain. A range of treatment related outcomes were investigated in the randomised controlled trial, including pain management, stress hormone  levels, heart rate, blood pressure, intranatal outcomes and labour duration. The findings of The CAM in Pregnancy Trial were very positive, which Dr McCullough will discuss in her talk, along with what it was like to be involved in this research, as a complementary therapist, scientist and mother.

Dr McCullough has authored and co-authored 12 peer-reviewed research papers and is currently working on the ConnectEpeople Project, which aims to develop new research priorities by connecting families who have a child with a congenital anomaly, with researchers across Europe.
