Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD)

This protocol has been developed by Sally Kay as a means to potentially support clients who have lymphodema due to removal of or an issue with their lymph nodes.  This reflexology therapy can be carried out on both lower and upper limbs.

Single treatments give a good indication of the benefits of this treatment and a course of six treatments has shown a decrease in the degree of lymphodema as well as a reduction in pain in the should and fingers.

It works by moving the lymph fluid from the affected limb to available lymph nodes  where harmful substances and waste products are filtered.  The filtered fluid is then returned to your blood.  This encourages drainage of the lymph fluid and helps with mobility, pain and flexibility in the limb.
