The Association of Reflexology provided some exciting news about a new research study into reflexology. A Functional MRI study was carried out by a group of Japanese researchers to follow-on from a previous study. They were looking for evidence of haemodynamic response (increased blood flow) to the relevant part of the human brain when a reflexology point is stimulated.
This study confirms their earlier research that there is such a response. If you would like to read the full paper it is available as an open access publication at http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6882/13/114.
