Stephenson Study Shows Reflexology Delivers Relief

In a two-year study, an East Carolina University School of Nursing researcher saw significant decreases in pain and anxiety in cancer patients whose partners used reflexology or manual pressure applied to specific points on their feet.

The findings of Nancy L.N. Stephenson, associate professor in the School of Nursing and principle investigator, were published in the January issue of “Oncology Nursing Forum.” Co-investigators include her colleagues in the nursing school, Melvin Swanson and Martha Engelke, as well as JoAnn Dalton at Emory University and Frances J. Keefe at Duke University. The study was funded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health.

Stephenson, a certified reflexologist, has applied for additional federal funding to continue her research into the effects of partner-delivered foot reflexology.
