Arthritis can be a painful and crippling disease caused by inflammation of the joints. Studies in China in 1996 suggest that reflexology had a beneficial effect for 91-95 percent of those suffering from arthritis.
As a relaxation technique, all reflexology points are manipulated, but the adrenal glands, kidneys and solar plexus as well as the area of the joints themselves may be tender (knees, hips,ect). Using gentle pressure to the reflex may bring relief.
I love to see the way reflexology helps people. Relaxing can be part of any healing plan.
