Reflexology uses pressure on specific points on the feet
Disruptive schoolchildren in south London will be given foot massages by therapists to help get their aggressiveness under control.
Reflexologists will visit 74 primary and secondary schools in Lambeth and tend to children under 13.
Lambeth Council has budgeted £90,000 next year for reflexologists from London-based charity Bud Umbrella.
The council said it makes "no apologies for using different and innovative methods" to tackle aggressive children.
Bud Umbrella's website says the therapy can calm aggressive feelings, improve listening skills and concentration as well as relieve anxiety and stress.
A spokeswoman for Lambeth Council said: "We make no apologies for using different and innovative methods, but this obviously won't replace more traditional ways of dealing with anti-social behaviour.
"We need to deal with the root causes of young people's behavioural problems and nip them in the bud."
The council said it had put an extra £2m into youth services and its programmes used traditional and innovative measures to tackle anti-social behaviour.
It said its programmes had led to a 50% increase in attendance and 60% decrease in exclusions among young people in the borough.
Reflexologists apply pressure on specific points on the feet to treat a number of conditions.
