Sally Kay Founder of Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD)

RLD is an award winning reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. The aim is to cause an effect on the lymphatic system in the body. It is a unique sequence that has been researched and developed by Sally Kay BSc(Hons), whilst working in Cancer Care. The results appear to support the theory of reflexology. I am a RLD practitioner and can be found on www.reflexologylymphdrainage.co.uk/england

Hagar Basis, (Director of The Reflexology Academy in London) was originally trained by Anthony Porter during the 1980s.

Hagar has been fortunate enough to work on many hundreds of patients presenting a wide variety of disorders. Her particular interest is in the treatment of gynaecological conditions, particularly low thyroid function and associated hormonal disorders such as infertility, endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.

Hagar provided me with training specifically for Women’s Health, by teaching practical techniques to help support women through the myriad of hormonal changes they encounter during each cyclical change, and the treatment of any dis-ease or discomfort associated with an imbalance, and the easing of conditions present within the gynaecological and the urological systems.
