Reflexology research

In each issue of FHT’s membership magazine, International Therapist, we publish a research section that features a short summary of four or five different studies that have recently appeared in peer-reviewed journals. As these studies help to highlight the potential health and wellbeing benefits of different therapies – often in a healthcare context – it’s not surprising that our members consistently vote* this as one of their ‘Top 3’ regulars in the magazine. 

With just over two weeks to go until World Reflexology Week (20-26 September, 2021) we thought we’d take this opportunity to share four research summaries that focus on reflexology, which we have re-published on our blog for all to enjoy… 

Reflexology reduces anxiety and improves sleep in informal carers of cancer patients  

Reflexology reduces back pain following coronary angiography 

Reflexology eases anxiety and depression in patients 

Hand reflexology and acupressure are equally effective for anxiety

*In our 2021 FHT Member Survey, 70% of respondents chose research as a section of International Therapist that they were most likely to read and engage with.
