  A 60 yr old man with a hiatus hernia complicated by antral gastritis and chronic cholecystitis was given 3 sessions of foot reflexology. His symptoms included retrosternal burning sensation, epigastric fullness and satiety, hiccups and a poor appetite. Pain became worse after drinking alcohol and eating fatty meat and peppery food. He also had vomiting and regurgitation after a full meal, bending or squatting. After 3 sessions, all symptoms were cured. He had not more pain after drinking alcohol and peppery food, he gained weight, and did self foot reflexology which kept him in good health. Results: anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects were achieved by improving circulation, normalizing metabolism, and making use of blood and lymphatic immune function.



Foot reflexology was found to be effective for the relief of hiatus hernia with complications of antral gastritis and chronic cholecystitis.
