Clinical Trial Summary

The primary purpose of the study is to know if foot reflexology can be accepted by patients hospitalized in palliative unit care (assessed by the number of patient who accept to participate), and if it is feasible (assessed by the realization of one session in normal condition : duration of 15-20 min, in supine position/seated or half-seated position).The investigators make the hypothesis that patients will accept to receive foot reflexology, and maybe feel less anxious after one session.

Clinical Trial Description

The patients will receive an informative content about the study and will have 24 hours of reflexion. If they accept to participate to the study, they will be randomised in one of the two groups : foot reflexology or "toucher massage" (for those randomised in the "toucher massage" group, a session of foot reflexology will be proposed in a second time). The investigators will assess the level of anxiety, the quality of the sleep and the pain using the ESAS scale, before and after the session. 24 hours after the session, they will be interviewed about what they felt with the session. The investigators will also have a look on the anxiolytic and antagic medication they consume before and after the session. ;
