In Denmark, many companies have been providing foot reflexology to their employees for years. Several studies were conducted in the 1990s to measure the effect of reflex zone therapy within companies.
One of the studies, conducted in 1996, consisted of measuring the effect of six foot reflex treatments among 143 employees suffering from tense muscles, stress, headache and migraine. After the six treatments, 79% indicated that they had no or less complaints, 92% wanted to continue the treatments and 30% indicated they were more satisfied with their job.
Another survey of 235 employees showed a decrease in absenteeism from 11.4 days to 8.5 days per employee over a period of 4 years
