Reflexology Lymph Drainage

Reflexology lymph drainage may help in the management of Lymphodeama

This treatment is exceptionally soothing and has been developed by Sally Kay during clinical practice at Cancer care clinics in Wales.  It has been developed to create a space for lymph to drain away from areas of swelling (lymphodeama) around the body.  


'Research published in 2018 showed beneficial outcomes for breast cancer sufferers.  The study team found that reflexology was a useful treatment for lymphoedema after breast cancer surgery. It reduced swelling and pain in the affected arm and improved quality of life.  26 women took part in this small study. They all had a type of reflexology treatment called Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) once a week for about a month.  All the women who took part said the sessions were very helpful.


The researchers measured the women’s arms before and after each session. In the final week of the study they didn’t have any reflexology treatment but they had their arms measured. The researchers also interviewed the women at the end of the study.

The main findings of the study were

  • The swelling in the affected arm went down in everyone who took part
  • The women with the most swelling had the largest reduction
  • The largest loss of fluid was after the 1st reflexology session with smaller losses at treatments 2, 3 and 4
  • Women said swelling and pain levels improved after treatment and reported their general well being was better'
