Reflexology Lymph Drainage – RLD Treatment – by Sally Kay renowned Reflexologist in UK

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. Following medical intervention approximately 20% of breast cancer patients suffer lymphoedema. After breast cancer, a person may experience psychological or emotional difficulties due to altered body image, and a swollen limb can exacerbate this (Mackereth & Carter 2006).

Research suggests that survivors with lymphoedema are more disabled, and they experience a poorer quality of life and more psychological distress than survivors without lymphoedema, (Bernas et.al.2010, Pyszel et.al. 2006, Ridner 2005). There is a need for more effective interventions and further research into a range of physical therapies for the management of lymphoedema.

Reflexology is a physical therapy focusing on the feet. Practitioners use specific pressure with thumb, finger and hand techniques to stimulate these reflexes on the premise that this effects a physical change in the body.

Anecdotally, cancer patients suffering from lymphoedema report positive effects on the swollen arm after reflexology treatment.
