②75歳以上の老人介護施設の居住者で、軽度の認知症とストレスに悩む方21名を対象に行われた研究。
二つのグループに分け、第一のグループでは30分のリフレクソロジーを週一回合計4回施し、リフレクソロジーの後に週一回のおしゃべり訪問を四週間続けた。第二のグループは先におしゃべり訪問を行ってから、リフレクソロジーを施術。どちらのグループも5分間のリラクゼーションテクニークと軽い足と手のストレッチを行ってから25分間を一緒に過ごし会話を楽しんだ。ストレスレベルを確認するために、唾液のサンプルを取り、AARS(?)とCNPI(The Checklist of Nonverbal Pain Indicators?)によって効果の観察を行った。

21 nursing home residents, 75 yrs and older, with mild to moderate dementia and stress were divided into 2 groups. The first group was given 30 min. of reflexology once a week for four weeks followed by a friendly visit once a week for four weeks. The second groups treatments were done in reverse order. In both groups, the sessions began with 5 minutes of progressive relaxation techniques and light stretching of feet and hands followed by 25 minutes of companionship and conversation. Several types of data were collected to measure stress level: saliva samples, observations of affect using AARS and pain using CNPI.
