Welcome to RLD.  

RLD 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. The results appear to support the theory of reflexology. 

Lymphoedema is defined as tissue swelling due to the failure of lymph drainage. After breast

cancer, a person may experience psychological or emotional difficulties due to altered body

image, and a swollen limb can exacerbate this. Research suggests that survivors with

lymphoedema are more likely to suffer psychological and emotional difficulties, be more

disabled, and experience a poorer quality of life than survivors without the condition.

Improved breast cancer survival rates suggest that approximately 2:3 women survive the

disease beyond 20 years. This means that more people are living longer with this debilitating

side effect for which there is currently no cure.  Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD) is used to

treat conditions other than lymphoedema, and RLD may be used similarly.  MLD may be

useful with the following conditions:  Arthritis, Asthma, Eczema, Chronic fatigue,  Fibromyalgia,

 Sinus problems, Migraines,  Headaches, Muscular tension,  Aches and pains,

Premenstrual Syndrome.
