Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) aims to support the client recovering from cancer who may also have secondary lymphoedema. The impact of swelling in the limbs following cancer treatment can be so significant for the physical self and emotional wellbeing.
Developed by Sally Kay while working with patients following mastectomy, RLD specifically targets the lymphatic reflexes in the feet. Working on these reflexes the aim is to stimulate the flow of lymph through the lymphatic system. This gentle treatment results in reduces swelling which in tandem reduces discomfort, increases mobility and improves emotional wellbeing.
RLD was primarily developed to treat secondary lymphoedema but there are many reports and emerging evidence that it is also beneficial for:-
- Primary lymphoedema
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Inflammatory autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthrits and ulcerative colitis
- Fluid retention in pregnancy
- Fluid retention associated with menstruation
“My foot is the best it has been in a long while, so all round, a positive outcome and result!” – Client Feedback
As with any holistic and complementary therapy there are occasions where it is not suitable. If you have any of the following RLD cannot be practiced.
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
- Kidney Failure
- Any undiagnosed swelling.
If you are unsure, please do get in touch and I am happy to discuss with you.
If your treatment is for lymphoedema I take measurements before and after the treatment so we can keep a record of its effectiveness.
