Reflexology Lymph Drainage

Reflexology lymph drainage, or RLD for short 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, whilst working in Cancer Care.

The lymphatic system can be described as the body’s secondary circulatory system, in which lymphatic fluid is moved around the body. It has its own network of vessels, and does a number of important jobs. It absorbs fat from the digestive system, helps to regulate body fluid, and provides the body with its vital natural defences against disease.

Unlike the circulatory system which has the heart to pump it along, the lymphatic system relies on the pulsation of arteries, the pressure difference in the upper body created by breathing, peristaltic movement of the intestine and contractions in the lymph vessels themselves.
