On Tuesday, October 30, 2018, Dr. Young Mi Lee gave a talk on "Research Trends and Practical Application of Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Foot Reflexology" at Global Leadership Foundation (GLF), located at 46-20 Parsons Blvd, Flushing, NY 11355. Approximately 30 people attended this seminar.

Foot reflexology, a field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, has recently emerged as a health care intervention. Foot reflexology stimulates the reflex zones and areas of the feet, which correspond to the organs of the human body. This includes 120 cells of the body, which respond to each reflector and have a corresponding reflexive effect on organs, muscles, and nerves. Reflexology also promotes blood circulation, relaxes tension, promotes psychological relaxation, improves sensory functions, controls pain, alleviates dyspnea, and reduces insomnia, depression, and anxiety. Dr. Lee will analyze the global research trends related to foot reflexology and discuss practical applications for health care.
