The theory behind reflexology is that points of origin on the hands and feet target specific points of the body (including major organs). According to livestrong.com “By applying pressure to a particular point, the reflexologist attempts to stimulate or modify energy in the organ or system to which it connects.”
I did find one study online which indicates that reflexology can act as a vertigo treatment. According to sophisticatededge.com the most frequent cause of vertigo in the elderly is something called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, or BPPV. This condition has been found to affect at least 64 out of every 100,000 Americans, while a study of residents with this condition in Germany found only eight percent of them were able to receive effective medical treatment for the condition.
Seminal Chinese Study was conducted, not surprisingly, in the country of the practice’s origin, China. At a conference held in China in 1996, Dr. Wang Liang presented his extensive findings. He compiled clinical results relating to 63 different ailments. Vertigo topped the list with a ratio of 75% of patients finding significant improvement in their condition as a result of reflexology. Of the 106 patients monitored, only five-or less than five percent-found that reflexology had no effect on their vertigo condition.
So if you are looking for an all natural vertigo treatment (that may actually feel good!) Maybe reflexology is worth a shot!
