Reflexology & MS

Postby oztherapist on Mon Apr 26, 2010 7:53 pm

Hi all

I'm currrently studying for my diploma in Reflexology (predominately Ingham method) & for the clinical requirements for my assessment I need to do a series of treatments on a few clients who suffer from a chronic, debilitating or life threatening condition. I have a client lined up that has had Multiple Sclerosis (relapsing-remitting form) since 2000. Her MS has worsened in the last year & her neurologist believes she is now in the secondary progressive phase. She is currently experiencing bowel incontinence from the colon being impacted. I was wondering if any of you have some experience working with MS clients & whether you could give me some advice on what would be the best approach/suggested procedure in this case? I'm a little concerned about overworking the systems ie. nervous & digestive in this particular client as she is fairly sensitive. Apparently, she has recently had three reflexology sessions from a certified reflexologist & has had an improvement in the numbness & nerve pain in one of her feet but hasn't noticed any other improvements.
I'd really appreciate your help or advice on this one!!!!

Thanks in advance.
