Reflexology Lymph Drainage
The lymphatic system clears waste matter, including, cellular debris and fatty acids from the tissues. It relies on us moving and breathing to flow.
RLD boosts elimination of waste through improved lymph flow.
RLD, an award winning Reflexology technique created by Sally Kay Bsc(Hons), focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. As with MLD (Lymphatic drainage massage) the aim of RLD is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body. The difference between MLD and RLD, is that with RLD only the feet and/or hands are worked avoiding direct touch on the affected area which may be painful. Read more

I had been suffering with huge amounts of fluid in my feet. No matter what I tried nothing had worked, then I went to see Anne and with only one treatment there was a huge improvement for the first time since I can remember. I could get my shoes on without any discomfort.
I would highly recommend Anne, she makes you feel really comfortable and is amazing.
