How Foot Reflexology Helps to Ease Fatigue in Multiple Sclerosis Patients

A Recent Study Proves That Foot Reflexology Therapy Relieves Fatigue Among MS Patients

 

During a recent study into foot reflexology and it’s effect on MS patients, researchers Fatemah Nazari, Mozhgan Soheili Shahreza, Vahid Shaygannejad and Mahboubeh Valiani found that foot reflexology treatment benefitted MS patients in ways none of them expected.

 

“Two 40-minute sessions of foot reflexology per week for four weeks resulted in a significant decrease in fatigue among women with multiple sclerosis (MS), both immediately after the four weeks of foot reflexology and two months later, according to recent research,” the authors write in their study entitled “Comparing the effects of reflexology and relaxation on fatigue in women with multiple sclerosis”.

 

Subjects in the relaxation group received 40 minutes of relaxation therapy twice a week for four weeks. The main outcome measure in this study was fatigue, as the study’s authors reported that “fatigue is the most common and highly disabling symptom of MS.”

 

“Results of the research revealed that, although fatigue severity was no different among the women across the three groups before the start of the intervention period, there were significant differences both immediately after and two months after the interventions came to a close,” they write.
