Reflexology Lymph Drainage

The aims and benefits

This is a reflexology technique that focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet with the aim of creating an effect on the lymphatic system of the body. This unique sequence was researched by Sally Kay BSc(Hons) whilst working in Cancer Care and is the routine I and other reflexologists use the most with My Cancer My Choices patients. 

When to have RLD

Primarily, this technique was developed for patients with lymphedema after breast cancer and now seems to have positive effects on other conditions similarly to MLD, including Arthritis, Asthma, Chronic fatigue, Eczema, Fibromyalgia, ME, Sinus problems, Migraines, Headaches, Muscular tension, Aches and pains and PMS
