Results from a recent research (publication pending) showed a positive trend and suggested that RLD may be helpful in the management of secondary lymphedema following treatment of breast cancer. Findings appear to support the theory of reflexology.

Findings proved that all patients treated felt more confident, that their clothing was significantly looser, that their arms felt lighter and less tight, less firm, their underarm swelling decreased, significant improved shoulder and arm mobility and less self-management was required.

What happens in your treatment? On the first treatment I take down your medical history. I then measure and mark both arms. This is so that each treatment and measurements are exact and comparative. I start with a relaxing foot rub. This is for you to get accustomed to the feeling of having your feet touched. The treatment can take up to an hour. This is followed by taking another set of measurements. After which I can accurately tell you how much lymphatic fluid has been moved.

During your treatment you may feel various sensations corresponding to the movement of the lymph. This is totally normal.
