  3 patients with facial palsy were given foot reflexology after unsuccessful results to previous treatments. One was, a 46 year old woman, who had hemifacial paralysis and numbness. She was given 30 minutes of foot reflexology daily focusing on the kidney, ureter, urinary bladder, pituitary gland, cerebellum, brainstem, the acupoint Taiyang, frontal sinus, eyes, upper and lower jaws, thoracic lymph nodes and genital reflexes. After two days, the lacrimation was less and after 4 days, all symptoms greatly improvement. Two weeks later she was back to normal. The other two patients were given other types of treatment with no results so they started foot reflexology therapy and did well.


  Foot reflexology was found to be effective for the relief of facial palsy.
