The Forende Danske Zoneterapeuter, or Danish Association of Reflexologists, conducted a research study to determine if Reflexology was an appropriate complementary therapy to help women with PCOS. Three reflexologists gave eight women a series of 19 sessions over six months. At the beginning of the study, participants had cycles ranging from 33 to 90 days long and were between the ages of 24 to 34 years old. At the end of the study the average cycles were decreased by 14.81 days and ultrasound scans determined that the women averaged 16.3 less follicles. The results are promising and it is hoped that a larger research study on Reflexology and PCOS will be considered.
