Reflexology | Alternative Treatments for Mesothelioma

Reflexology | Alternative Treatments for Mesothelioma: "... reflexology has also proven successful for the relief of post-operative pain for the many mesothelioma patients who undergo various surgical treatments for their disease and in palliative care for those in end stage cancer. The American College of Physicians encourages care givers to learn and use reflexology in their publication entitled 'A Home Care Guide for Advanced Cancer' and a study that appeared in England's Nursing Standard journal indicated that advanced cancer patients 'relaxed, were comforted, and achieved relief from some of their symptoms' when reflexology was administered to them."
