RLD is a ground breaking and award winning reflexology technique for lymph drainage, developed by Sally Kay, it has revolutionised the treatment of not only lymphoedema in those surviving cancer, but other lymphatic conditions as well.
It was an privilege for me to attend RLD training with Sally Kay and I now use this technique, bringing relief to my clients and also finding the approach helpful with others looking for support in managing their health conditions.
The creation of RLD came about from Sally’s desire to help relieve the physical and emotional symptoms of lymphoedema, drawing on her knowledge of the lymphatic system and Manual Lymph Drainage.
“As a researcher, reflexologist and cancer survivor I wholeheartedly support the benefits of RLD” Dr Carol Samuel
Here are some common symptoms of a congested lymphatic system:
Breast swelling or soreness with each cycle
Dry skin Mild rash or acne Hypersensitivity
Rings get tight on fingers
Soreness and/or stiffness in the morning
Feeling tired Bloating / Holding on to water
Itchy skin Weight gain and extra belly fat
Elevated histamine and irritation due to common environmental allergens
Occasional constipation, diarrhea, and/or mucus in the stool
Always consult your GP first about new or worsening symptoms.
RLD treatments are around 45 to 50 minutes. I use a series of specialised reflexology techniques to activate your lymphatic system, which promotes the flow and drainage of lymph. A initial course of weekly or bi-weekly treatments is recommended to experience the best results.
