  Foot reflexology was applied to 82 normal children as the Reflexology Group. Another 80 children were randomly selected as the Control Group. Children of the 2 groups were between 3 months old and 3 years old. The children in the Reflexology Group accepted reflexology sessions twice a day, each session lasting 15 minutes, while no reflexology treatment was applied to the Control Group over the same period. Six months later, comparison was made between the 2 groups on various items.



The results showed that reflexology health-care improved appetite and sleep to the children markedly. Growth of the children was accelerated both in terms of height and weight. Incidence of Upper Respiratory tract infection was lower in the Reflexology Group and the duration of the illness was shorter. The result also showed that the incidence of digestive problems was lower in the Reflexology Group compared to the Control Group and the duration of the illness was shorter.
