As a student remedial therapist I recently treated someone with diabetes. My boss treated the friend with Chinese reflexology while I treated the diabetic with just normal foot massage. The diabetic had a mottled look to her feet after treatment but said that she would feel the blood flowing back into her feet and that it had been a while since she had felt anything like that.
Generally foot and lower leg massage is good for diabetics Asti increases the blood flow in those areas and helps with the removal of the toxins building up in the lower limbs. Personally I would never recommend massage as a cure for something and always suggest that they see their doctor to ensure that there is no conflicts with their medications etc.
Ps. I am an Australian working in Australia... I have no idea how things work elsewhere but this is just my opinion on things.
What I have read here is very helpful in my line of work..
Glad we could help.
Did you realise this topic is several years old? Just wondering.
Where in Oz are you? Do you have type 2 yourself?
