The Science of Reflexology for Headaches

In one study, massage was used 2-3x/wk for 6 months, to help four adults experiencing chronic tension headaches.

  • By the first week, the number of headaches was reduced for everyone.
  • By the end of the treatment, the average number of headaches fell from almost 7 headaches per week to just 2.
  • The average length of their headache decreased by half, from 8 total hours to 4.

In another study, 21 women had 10 intense one-hour massage sessions spread over 2 weeks. It led to a reduced occurrence, duration, and intensity of headaches.
