Reflexology for Cancer Clients

Written by

Reflexology is an effective form of therapeutic foot treatment that aims to treat the client from a mind-body-spirit perspective. Reflexology cannot isolate a disease such as cancer and treat it symptomatically, nor does it work on a problem organ or body system. This treatment works with a focus of inducing a state of balance and harmony. As a holistic therapy, reflexology aims to treat the body, as a whole, and endeavours to get to the root cause of disease and treat the disease rather than the symptoms.

 

Therapeutic reflexology can be performed in the feet, hands, and ears, but this article will only examine its function with the feet. Corresponding areas on the feet are easier to locate than the eyes, ears, and hands as they cover a larger area and are more specific, making them easier to work on.

Managing Stress Can Help People Improve Their Skin Conditions

Written by

As anyone with a chronic, inflammatory skin condition, such as psoriasis, rosacea or acne, knows, dealing with unpredictable flares can cause considerable stress and have a negative effect on a person's overall well-being. Now, an ever-growing body of research shows how the complex link between the skin and the psyche — including the role of stress — affects skin conditions.

At the American Academy of Dermatology's Summer Academy Meeting 2011 in New York, dermatologist and clinical psychologist Richard G. Fried, MD, PhD, FAAD, of Yardley, Pa., discussed the skin-psyche connection and how incorporating various stress-management techniques into a dermatologic treatment regimen can help patients with skin conditions feel better physically and emotionally.
