How Reflexology Helps Persons with Peripheral Neuropathy

I’ve had a couple of people contact me recently asking if reflexology can help with peripheral neuropathy, so I thought that it would be a good topic to address.

How Reflexology Benefits Seniors

Human connection through touch is good for mental and emotional well-being. As many people age, they find themselves isolated and lonely because spouses and friends have died, and/or loved ones live far away.
