Reflexology for Cancer
When cancer patients face stress, fatigue, or nausea, reflexology can help ease symptoms. Although each patient responds individually, reflexology can support relaxation and comfort during cancer treatment.
Foot reflexology is not the same as foot massage. Unlike massage, reflexology does not encourage relaxation through muscle and tissue manipulation. Instead, I’ll touch specific zones in the feet that correspond to reflex points in other areas of the body. Touching the feet stimulates nerve pathways that facilitate relaxation elsewhere, providing a bull-body benefit just from your feet.
Reflexology may be a good choice for patients who don’t want to be touched, or who can’t be touched or moved during treatment. Unlike massage, it involves only the feet, with no repositioning or undressing required.
Reflexology may benefit patients who feel stressed, anxious, nauseous, or who have trouble sleeping. If patients feel more relaxed on reflexology treatment days, they may sleep better that night and have more energy the following day.
Reflexology snowballs into wonderful things. When reflexology helps with relaxation or helps with one symptom, it seems to also help improve the other symptoms.
