When walking with Reflosocks on I can feel pressure points picking up painful areas under foot, which is most relaxing

Reflosocks for back and neck pain can help Fibromyalgia

In February 2009, with the help of volunteers from Fibromyalgia U.K. magazine , 48 fibromaylgia sufferers tested Reflosocks for back and neck pain for approximately 6 weeks ,recording their responses on a questionnaire.

If you have not heard of Reflosocks before now, they are a cotton sock, designed by a reflexologist, to stimulate specific reflexology zones as you walk or stand in them;

Reflosocks for back and neck stimulate the areas on the feet which relate to the back and neck, and as many fibromyalgia sufferers have extreme sensitivity and pain in these areas particularly, Reflotherapies decided to conduct this product trial. The results are detailed below:

2% were age group 21-30 years
17 % were age group 31-40 years
26 % were age group 41-55 years
44% were age group 56-65 years
11 % were age group 66-85 years
56% of the study group found Reflosocks to be helpful alleviating the symptoms of their condition.
54% of the study group were able to reduce the level of painkillers they were taking.
52% said that Reflosocks helped to relieve the pain.
33% reported increased mobility
30% reported an ease in joint pain
30 % reported improved circulation
33 % reported having fewer headaches.
44% reported sleeping better
37% found that their energy levels seemed to improve.

Many people who suffer from fibromyalgia already have regular reflexology and find it beneficial, so are familiar with the concept behind Reflosocks, and indeed wear their Reflosocks between reflexology treatments .A reflexology treatment will cost anywhere between £20 - £35 and so Reflosocks are an economical way to benefit from the healing and pain relieving powers of reflexology between sessions.

The following are quotes from fibromyalgia sufferers who have benefitted from wearing Reflosocks :

‘Not only to they take the pain away or lessen it, which is a benefit in itself, but if I am feeling tense (which makes the pain worse anyway)-they help me to relax and feel very mellow.’
‘ They do seem to help and are most comfortable; I don’t want to take them off.’
‘ They relieved the pain and were comfortable’
‘There is some pain relief in my neck and shoulders – I can knit more, which I enjoy’
‘Thank you so much for the socks. They have definitely made a difference’
‘When walking with Reflosocks on I can feel pressure points picking up painful areas under foot, which is most relaxing.’
‘An easy way to try reflexology’
‘They help- relief at last!’
‘Its’ a convenient and easy way to help oneself’
