Resumen

El empleo de la medicina alternativa y complementaria es un tema de debate en los últimos años. Dentro de esta medicina alternativa encontramos la reflexología, entendida como una terapia practicada como tratamiento en la cual las plantas de los pies son masajeadas para estimular el aporte de sangre y los nervios y así aliviar la tensión. A muchas mujeres les gustaría evitar los métodos farmacológicos o invasivos de alivio de dolor en el trabajo de parto. Esta revisión tiene como objetivo demostrar que la reflexología puede ayudar a las mujeres embarazadas a mejorar los síntomas producidos por alteraciones durante la gestación y que puede ser útil para disminuir la intensidad del dolor, así como, la duración del trabajo de parto.
Palabras clave: Reflexología/ Reflexología y embarazo/ Reflexología y parto.
 

Abstract

The use of complementary and alternative medicine has attracted a debate in recent years. We find reflexology as alternative medicine understood as a form of therapy practised as a treatment in which the soles of the feet are massaged: designed to stimulate the blood supply and nerves and thus relieve tension. Many women would like to avoid pharmacological or invasive methods of pain management in labour. This review aims to show that reflexology may help pregnant women to improve symptoms caused by alterations during pregnancy and can be useful to decrease the pain intensity as well as duration of labour.
Key-words: Reflexology/ Reflexology and pregnancy/ Reflexology and labour.
