What is RLD?
Reflexology Lymph Drainage is an award winning reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body. It is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay BSc(Hons), whilst working in Cancer Care.
I am very fortunate to have trained with Sally Kay, and can now offer RLD in my treatments. It is a beautiful therapy to receive, and requested by many clients.
For fertility clients, RLD is a very appropriate technique to use to support certain aspects of your reflexology treatment. Not only does it feel wonderful on your feet, it offers other benefits to your well-being. We will discuss this in your sessions.

Who can benefit from RLD?
RLD was developed to support people suffering from secondary lymphoedema, but in practice it seems to benefit so many more people. Research has not yet indicated how it helps other clients, but I have found it particularly useful when working with people suffering with ME, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia because it seems to reduce the exhaustion effect that can be experienced with other therapies. There is not yet any evidence to support this, but please do contact me if you would like to discuss more about RLD and how it can help you.
