Reflexology is a technique derived from traditional Chinese medicine in which pressure is applied to the feet (and sometimes hands) without using oils or creams. If you are affected by MS, reflexology could help improve sensory symptoms, urinary symptoms and muscular stiffness. The relaxation it brings can also help combat the stresses of living with the condition.
Aromatherapy is the use of fragranced plant oils to promote relaxation and wellbeing. Oils may be massaged into the skin, mixed with bath water or inhaled. If you are affected by MS, the calming effects of aromatherapy could help with sleep and the reduction of stress.
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the client by means of touch. This can activate the natural healing processes of the body and restore physical and emotional well-being. You may find Reiki helpful in improving MS-related symptoms such as anxiety, poor sleep, fatigue and pain.
