Ko, YS., Park, MK., “Effects of Self-foot Reflexology on Fatigue and Sleep States in Women Nurses.” Korean J Women Health Nurs. 2007 Mar;13(1):21-27.


  40 women nurses were divided into two groups: an experimental group of 20 and a control group of 20. The experimental group performed 40 minutes of self-foot reflexology two times a week for 4 weeks on both feet. The control group did nothing during the study. Data was measured using a chi-square-test and t-test by SPSS version 12.0 program. Results: fatigue was lower and sleep state higher in the experimental group.



Self-foot reflexology was found to decrease fatigue and increase sleep states in clinical nurses. However, more intensive study is needed to verify to be effective.
