New Complementary Therapies & Fibro factsheet

We've just launched a new factsheet on Complementary Therapies & Fibro. This is a new format factsheet, and the first we have published that has been developed under the Information Standard.

Please read it, print it if you want (it's pretty big!) and share it with anyone who might be interested. :)

Hi Lindsey, thanks for the info sheet I'm sure it will be of use to a great many people. I have one concern though. I'm a qualified reflexologist and I was surprised that the link for information doesn't take people to the Association of Reflexologists ( who are the leading independent body in the UK. Their membership criteria are very robust indeed and cover a number of different styles of reflexology, including light or gentle touch which people dealing with fibro pain might find much more comfortable. I've had both light and standard treatments and sometimes found standard to be too painful when I'm in flare and my poor feet are sore. The current link on the factsheet appears to go to a body affiliated with one school only, offering only treatments in the original Bayly method which are really quite firm and, in some locations, there are very few listed practitioners. I wonder if it is possible to change the factsheet to include a link to the AOR website?


Hi mistymeana

Thanks for your feedback. What I can do is log your feedback so that next time the resource is reviewed, it will be taken into account and the AOR will be listed as an information resource.

As well as the British Reflexology Society, the factsheet does also suggesta seeing the website of The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). A number of organisations, including the AoR, are eligible to verify reflexologists for CNHC registration.
