Reflexology and massage

Posted by Helena S. on 8/01/04 at 21:22 (156741)

Is it beneficial for the heelspur and/or plantar fascialitis, to get massaged on the feet? I usually get reflexology massage on my feet once or twice a week, but do not know whether it would help or harm the condition?

Reflexology is a type of massage of points on the foot that correspond, according to reflexologists, to other body systems and somehow affect other body systems by that massage. It would rarely hurt PF.
