On the subject of massage (and barefoot sports massage in particular) I really like a quote from John Harris, who also frequently teaches at SB Body Therapy Institute. "I don't diagnose. I don't cure. I just step on it and if someone feels better when I'm done, great!" I like the humility and general lack of "woo" there.
One thing medical science has confirmed is that stress has a serious and significantly negative effect on health. If massage is a good way to address stress, then clearly it has associated positive effects on health. I believe that reflexology does this, and the addition of a nice big placebo supported by confirmation bias ("I paid a lot for this treatment, so it must be effective") probably doesn't hurt either.
