I think this is good for some bodily ailments but it is not advisable for all. It is also not a cure but a complementary therapy that would help in easing the pain. I have read the problems about hip pain at the depuypinnaclelawsuit. com that are not easily treated by just medications and exercises alone but the patients may benefit from this therapy.

Yes, reflexology targets key vein points so it does relieve pain.

This is good news. However, new technologies/developments are really welcome especially in hip replacement, as you may know the rate of hip implants failing is high leading to hip revision surgeries and other complications as well. If you want to know more about bone health and related injuries, there are articles that I bumped into at http://www.strykerhipreplacementrecall.net/st... that may be of great help to you.

I think it does help alleviate the pain but it does not really get rid of the problem. It may used as an additional therapy but not as the only therapy used for most physical ailments. I have read that it can also help those who have arthritis, many people shared their own practices online and several sites including http://pinnaclelawsuit.typepad.com

Reflexology is helpful in curing acute pain. I visited Belle Vie Day Spa and subscribed for foot reflexology. I got relief from the pain within few sessions.
