Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD)

RLD is a technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. It is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay BSc (Hons) whilst working in Cancer Care. Sally was awarded the FHT Excellence in Practice Award 2012 for research and development into Reflexology Lymph Drainage. In addition she was awarded funding by a Welsh cancer charity Tenovus for further research into RLD in partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University. The summary of data from this research found that all 26 participants had reductions in swelling of the affected arm. For further details about this amazing study please visit Sally Kay's website

As the lymphatic reflexes are stimulated in the feet, the aim is to cause an effect within the lymphatic system in the body. Swelling should reduce within the affected area. Studies have shown that with repeated treatments of Reflexology Lymph Drainage the fluid build up doesn't return to the maximum level experienced by the client.

It is advised that a minimum of 4 weekly sessions should be booked as this shows to be most effective. Follow up sessions can be booked as and when required. Some clients will be happy to have monthly maintenance treatments whereas others will prefer to have one-off sessions when they feel it is necessary - it's entirely up to you.
