  3 patients with varying degrees of Parkinson's were given 45 minutes of foot reflexology for 10 sessions focusing on the cerebellum, heart and spleen, vertebrae, stomach and intestine, shoulder, elbow and knee, and lymphatic system reflex areas. They were also given 10 minutes of specific limb movements. They also drank 500 ml of warm water afterwards. Some patients continued sessions for a month and the family members were shown how to help.


  Foot reflexology was found to be effective for relief of the symptoms associated with Parkinson's syndrome.
