I Understand You Can Diagnose With Reflexology

Unless you have been through medical school and are licensed to diagnose, in most countries of the world, it is illegal to diagnose, consequently, it is illegal to diagnose with reflexology. More importantly, it is unethical, in the opinion of Bill Flocco, Director of the American Academy of Reflexology to diagnose with reflexology for two additional reasons. Irregularities (such as tenderness) in a reflex area, can be caused by many different factors, such as a bone out of alignment, a strained muscle, or poor circulation in the feet or hands. Secondly, a number of research studies conducted to determine if reflexology could be used as a dependable diagnostic approach, give different results with a couple of studies in China showing some favorable results while another study conducted by Medical Doctors and Reflexologists in England, demonstrated that reflexology is not effective for diagnosis
