Jiang Y., "Foot Reflexology Therapy for Benign Intracranial Hypertension: Report of One Case." 1993 China Reflexology Symposium Report, Beijing : China Reflexology Association, page 11.


  A 37 year old woman, with 10 year history of headache, dizziness and blurred vision because of benign intracranial hypertension was given foot reflexology and Chinese herbs for 1-1/2 months after unsuccessful treatment with steroids. Symptoms were relieved and 6 months later, a funduscopy showed that the patient had normal optic discs and complete resorption of the hemorrhage.



Foot reflexology was shown to possibly be effective for the relief of benign intracranial hypertension by regulating edocrine system and promoting lymphatic circulation.
