Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) is a form of the complementary therapy, reflexology. This therapy focuses on lymphatic reflexes on the feet that aim to stimulate and cause an effect on the Lymphatic System within the body. RLD treatment stimulates the flow of the fluid (Lymph) through the Lymphatic System which explains the reduction of swelling.

How does RLD help?
The Lymphatic System is connected to three other body systems: cardiovascular, digestive and immune system. The specific area of the feet has thousands of nerve endings that corresponds to other parts of our body. Stimulation of nerves supplying the feet can help improve blood and lymph circulationand restore energy flow. RLD can help in a variety of ways. This includes:
Less pain and discomfort
A feeling of improved body image and wellbeing
An increase in the strength and mobility of the arm or leg
