Duanmu, H., "A Clinical Investigation on 57 Cases with Infantile Asthma Treated by Foot Reflexology." 1996 China Reflexology Symposium Report, Beijing : China Reflexology Association, pages 17-18.

Synopsis:
57 infants and small children with infantile asthma were given foot reflexology on the whole foot for 3-5 days because of the toxic effects to their organs from increases in medication. It was found that foot reflexology created a higher resistance to inhaled allergens, reducing the occurrence of bronchial hyperemia or edema. Also, the immune system was strengthened and the white blood cell count increased. The cure rate was 96.49%.

Conclusion:
Foot reflexology was found to be effective in the relief of infantile asthma.
