As a qualified Reflexologist I trained in Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD), an award winning reflexology technique, with Sally Kay BSc(Hons) who researched and developed it whilst working in Cancer Care. It is a unique sequence that focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body.
This technique can only be performed during a Foot Reflexology session.
WHAT IS THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM?
The lymphatic system is one of the most important systems in our body. Proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to detoxify, nourish and regenerate tissue, filter out metabolic waste and inorganic material, and maintain a healthy immune system. A well-functioning lymphatic system is important to our health and well-being. The lymph circulates white blood cells which fight infection and contribute to the production of antibodies crucial elements in supporting the immune system. In addition to white blood cells, hormones are also carried throughout the body via lymph.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN BENEFIT FROM THIS TREATMENT?
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:
Rheumatoid Arthritis (for further information please go to Rheumatoid Arthritis Support Network (RASN))
Chronic Fatigue / ME
Aches & pains
Allergies – Hayfever
Pregnancy related Oedema
Why do I work the Lymphatic System?
The lymphatic system is our body's 'sewerage system'. It maintains fluid levels in our body tissues by removing all fluids that leak out of our blood vessels. The lymphatic system is important for the optimal functioning of our general and specific immune responses.
I am also a big believer that we have physical manifestations of our beliefs. Throughout the years I am beginning to see a connection between a compromised Lymphatic system and someone who is holding onto emotions, fears and other lower frequency thought patterns.
Right now, I feel that it the THE most important technique of the many different techniques I have learnt over the years.
Looking after the physical body by not only using Reflexology but also Reiki so we can work in tandem with the unconscious emotions & fears.
If you are interested to read up more on this topic. I recommend Louise Hay. Louise's key message in this powerful work is: "If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed."
