Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD)
RLD (Reflexology Lymph Drainage) is an award winning reflexology technique by Sally Kay which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to stimulate the function of the lymphatic system and drain excess lymph from the damaged area using a unique sequence.
Lymphoedema is defined as tissue swelling due to the failure of lymph drainage. After breast cancer a person may experience psychological or emotional difficulties due to altered body image, and a swollen limb can exacerbate this. The entire treatment takes place on your feet which is deeply relaxing and uses very light pressure. Reflexology Lymph Drainage is very similar to Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) except the treatment takes place on the feet so it is less invasive.
This technique can be used to help with conditions other than lymphoedema including; arthritis, asthma, eczema, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, ME, sinus problems. migraines. headaches, muscular tension, aches and pains and pre-menstrual syndrome.
On 20th August 2020 I received my certificate to confirm I passed my case study!!!
What is incredible is that a client suffering from oedema couldn't believe she had to tighten the strap on her shoes on leaving my treatment room as her feet had shrunk during the treatment. The fact that the result is instant makes it even more exciting!
