Author unknown, "The Effects of Reflexology on Infants with Screaming Fits." Accepted for publication: Ugeskrift for Laeger (Danish MD Journal).


  30 crying infants with colic, aged 1-3 months, were tested for a 2-week period. Ten received 4 sessions of reflexology over 2 weeks focusing on reducing crying, 10 received non-specific reflexology, and 10 received conventional medical treatment and no reflexology. The group that received conventional medical treatment showed marked reductions in screaming fits; the group receiving targeted reflexology showed greater benefit.



Initial information available prior to publication indicate that reflexology is more likely to be beneficial in the treatment of infants with screaming fits due to colic (45%) versus conventional medicine (0%).
