Facial Reflexology May Help Alleviate Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Can Pressing on Your Eyebrows Cure Stomach Problems?


Facial reflexology has been around for quite some time, but lately it's been receiving a great deal of attention as a pain and symptom management therapy. Apparently, people with the gastrointestinal disorder irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) find it especially beneficial.

Would you consider trying facial reflexology to manage a medical condition, or would you rather take a pill?
