Reflexology Lymph Drainage

I’m really excited to now be offering a truly brilliant form of advanced reflexology: Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD).

RLD is an award winning reflexology technique originally developed by Sally Kay BSc (Hons) whilst working in Cancer Care. It was developed to mirror the basis of Manual Lymph Drainage massage via the reflexes of the feet to work with clients with unilateral secondary lymphoedema in Breast Cancer patients.

The techniques used aim stimulate the lymphatic system via the reflexes in the feet.

It is a truly wonderful, deeply relaxing treatment.

The effectiveness of the treatment for supporting people with secondary Lymphoedema has been researched and you can access the results online here.

The method includes using quantitative and qualitative data collection.  Measurements of the affected arm are taken to compare the volume size of the affected and the unaffected arm, and to compare any improvement in volume before and after the treatment.   Outcomes measures are also used to chart any changes in quality of life and everyday wellbeing.

RLD may also be beneficial for the same conditions that MLD has been used to support:
