  The author applied foot reflexotherapy to 28 healthy infants for 3 months as the Reflexology Group. At the same time a Control Group of 30 infants was selected at random to make a comparative study. Then the Denver Developmental Screening Test (DDST) was carried out in both groups in order to observe the effect of foot reflexotherapy in promoting infantile mental development. The parents were trained to practice foot reflexotherapy, which was then applied to the children in the Reflexology Group twice daily. Each session lasted 20-30 minutes. After 3 months of foot reflexotherapy, DDST was carried out for all the children in the two groups.



Foot reflexotherapy could remarkably improve infants’ abilities of reactions in dealing with humans and materials, fine movement, coarse movement, language, and enhance communication between infants and parents.
