Duanmu, H., "Treating 22 Cases Infantile Intussusceptions with Reflexotherapy Combined with Tuina." 1998 China Reflexology Symposium Report, Beijing : China Reflexology Association, page 18.


  22 cases, both male and female, under 2 years old with infantile intussusception along with diarrhea, paroxysmal abdominal pain, restlessness, pale complexion, sweating, vomiting and jam-like bloody stools, were given 20-30 minutes of foot reflexology daily focusing on the abdominal reflexes. Results: 21 cases were relieved and one had surgery.



Foot reflexology, in conjunction with tuina, was found to be mostly effective for the relief of infantile intussusceptions, or twisting of the bowel.
