This week’s article from Glenina Reflexology focuses on the Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage.

Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD) is a unique reflexology sequence developed by reflexologist, researcher, and author Sally Kay. She developed it over a number of years from the principles of reflexology and her extensive clinical practice. RLD may help the body efficiently remove toxins and this could support those with auto-immune disorders including rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other inflammatory conditions.

There are 7,000 nerve endings in the feet and that level of sensitivity enables the energy pathways to be opened and for congested energy to be unblocked. This is very useful with RLD. The lymphatic system drains wastes from the body’s cells with the help of lymph nodes which are situated throughout the body. Good lymphatic drainage is essential to help the body cleanse itself.

Anatomically, the lymphatic system is made up of a series of vessels and nodes that collect and filter excess tissue fluid (known as lymph fluid) before returning it to the blood to be circulated and removed. There are lymphoid organs including the bone marrow, thymus, spleen and tonsils that contain lymphatic tissue and are involved in blood filtering and the maturation of lymphocytes. All of these parts play a vital part in the body’s immune system. Lymphocytes are found in the circulatory system but are also in the lymph organs where the initial immune response is likely to occur.

RLD can benefit those who have primary or secondary lymphoedema, pregnancy related oedema, swelling and skin conditions. People with serious health conditions need to check with their GP before starting a course of RLD to see if it’s appropriate for them and to get medical consent.

Reflexology is a gentle yet powerful, non-invasive treatment which is free from medication and encourages the body to heal itself naturally. The success of RLD is mostly down to the consistency and gentleness of the technique. Regular treatments will show results and these present as feeling lighter, pain relief, relaxation,

increased energy and support in cancer care. I’ll elaborate more next week on this with a special piece about oncology reflexology.
