Those who experience regular headaches will know how debilitating they can be.
Other than reaching for medicine to provide relief there are other methods that help and one of these is reflexology, which has been shown in studies to help those suffering from headaches.
One particular study, which took place over a period of 6 months, monitored 220 subjects who suffered from migraines and/or tension headaches. The diagnosis for each patient was made by a consulting physician according to the International Headache Society Classification (1988).
The outcome of the study?
A massive 81% of patients reported that reflexology treatments helped to relieve their headaches. As well as this, 19% of participants who were taking drugs for their headache problems prior to the study, were able to stop taking medication after the study.
The conclusion was that reflexology seems to help in multiple ways – improving general well-being, increasing energy levels, making it easier for recipients to interpret their own body signals and to understand the causes of their headaches.
If you frequently suffer from headaches you may wish to consider trying reflexology – it may help to relieve the pain and discomfort.
