Reflexology is one of the most popular types of complementary therapy in the UK among people with cancer.



When cancer patients face stress, fatigue, or nausea, they may turn to integrative therapies such as reflexology to help ease symptoms. Although each patient responds individually, reflexology can support relaxation and comfort during cancer treatment and offers an alternative to traditional massage.

Reflexology for Cancer Care

When cancer patients face stress, fatigue, or nausea, they may turn to integrative therapies such as reflexology to help ease symptoms. Although each patient responds individually, reflexology can support relaxation and comfort during cancer treatment and offers an alternative to traditional massage.

Reflexology may be a good choice for patients who don’t want to be touched, or who can’t be touched or moved during treatment. Unlike massage, it involves only the feet, with no re-positioning or undressing required.

  • Reflexology may benefit patients who feel stressed, anxious, nauseous, or who have trouble sleeping.



  • Cancer Care Reflexology. LYMPH

    RLD Lymphatic Drainage

    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.



    Typical reactions

    Typical reactions during and after a reflexology session are:

  • Increased energy
  • Inner peace
  • Gentle tingling sensations
  • Clearer senses
  • Lessening of stress and emotional problems
  • Improved physical health
  • Increased ability to deal positively with stressful situations
  • A general feeling of being more whole, healthy and happy, a healthier sense of self.

    Everyone is different, and some people may feel nothing during a treatment and this is also normal! Reflexology works in the way that we need it as individuals.
