A while back I posted a letter that my daughter had written in response to a journalist. She didn’t receive a reply but they say writing is good therapy 🙂
Today she posted the following on her blog (on a different platform, and which will remain anonymous – it’s for her and others with IBD to support each other).
I’m not saying that this will “heal” anybody or make their symptoms better or go away but reflexology is really relaxing and it is quite amazing how it works. My mum is a reflexologist and sometimes practices on me or does my feet if I ask her to. Whenever she does, she has to be really soft on the bottom of my feet because they are so sore (which relates to my UC). She was giving me reflexology a few days before my first colonoscopy (when I got diagnosed) to relax me and the pain was excruciating when she went near that area! Anyway, if you ever get the chance to have reflexology, do it simply for the relaxation!
(for appointments move to oz 😉 just sayin…)
