Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) uses specific techniques for lymphatic drainage via the feet.
RLD may be beneficial in supporting people affected by breast cancer and may help ease discomfort, help increase mobility and strength in limbs affected from this type of cancer.
What is lymphoedema?
Swelling that occurs as a result of an imbalance in the lymphatic system, often a result of damage or trauma.
The lymphatic system is part of our immune system, helping us to fight infection, cleanse & help us balance fluids in the body.
If you imagine it as our own internal cleansing system, helping our body to work efficiently.
To enable lymph to move through our body, vessels contract, aided by muscle movement (exercise). It then passes through a lymph node, or gland, found in various parts of the body to be filtered and removed by the body's natural defence system, finally draining back into the larger veins in the neck, via the blood to the heart and removed through the kidneys.
RLD may also provide relief to those with Fibromyalgia, ME, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, migraines & headaches, asthma, eczema, psoriasis, sinus problems, muscular tension, PMS and other inflammatory auto-immune disorders.
