Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD)
The aim of RLD is to stimulate the lymphatic system through the feet to drain excess fluid from the damaged area. Several abstract research studies show it benefits cancer patients who experience secondary lymphoedema as a result of medical intervention after breast cancer. RLD is also very effective for primary lymphoedema and auto-immune diseases.
Gaby is one of only a few Approved RLD Practitioners in South Africa.
This is a specific technique applied to nerve runs on the feet and lower legs which is effective in turning on the body's healing system.
Gaby is the only Approved Neuroflexology© Practitioner in South Africa.
Palliative Care Reflexology
Each treatment is tailored for each cancer patient, helping to alleviate pain, anxiety, cancer symptoms and side effects caused by conventional treatments. Treatments are also tailored for frail and sick patients.
Hip and Knee Pain
Working the nerves that innervate the knee and hip joints facilitates immediate pain relief and muscle relaxation. In order to deliver an effective and direct treatment, these nerves are tested to evaluate the patient before and after treatment.
Auricular Therapy/Ear Reflexology
The aim of Auricular Therapy is to stimulate the micro-system representation of the body on the external ear for the purpose of assisting in the treatment of various health condition. Stimulation of these specific reflex points is by manual pressure (Auricular Acupressure) and the application of magnetic seeds. This therapy helps relieve chronic pain, congestion and aids in detoxification to restore balance within.
