Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage
What is Lymphoedema?
“Persistent tissue swelling due to blockage or absence of the lymph drainage channels with accumulation of interstitial fluid” (Mortimer 1985)
Psychological and psychosocial problems
Loss of confidence
Uncomfortable wearing certain clothing
Altered ability to complete everyday tasks
Charmaine Clarke has recently qualified as a Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD) practitioner and now offers this treatment from our practice.
Combining the principles of reflexology and manual lymphatic drainage, results from recent research (publication pending) showed a positive trend and suggest that RLD may be helpful in the management of secondary lymphoedema following treatment for breast cancer.
Findings also support the general principles of reflexology. Also, it has been suggested that this form of reflexology could be beneficial for people with certain auto-immune conditions.
