Often science takes a little longer to catch on to what we already know through personal experience. Researchers have recently discovered what my regular clients living with long term, chronic conditions have known for a while - Reflexology is an effective treatment for pain management.
Reflexology For Pain Management
A study conducted by the University of Portsmouth showed that people receiving Reflexology felt 40% less pain than those who didn't receive Reflexology.
Not only that, but they were also able to tolerate any pain they did experience for 45% longer than people who didn't received Reflexology.
