Manual Lymphatic Drainage

///Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a very gentle, powerful, relaxing and soothing massage which works with your lymphatic system to encourage the body’s natural healing abilities. Clients often fall asleep during a treatment as its so relaxing.

Some of the many benefits may be:

  • Reduces tiredness
  • Reduces cellulite
  • Reduces stress
  • Reduces sinusitis
  • Reduces fluid retention which may or may not be linked to pregnancy
  • Strengthens your immune system
  • Aids the removal of toxins from your system
  • Reduces pain – whether from headaches, sprains, sports injuries, etc.
  • Helps alleviate digestive disorders
  • Aids reduction of swelling and puffiness in tissues
  • Manages lymphodema which is often the result of cancer or its treatment
  • Beneficial before and after surgery to minimise scar formation and tissue congestion

This treatment is often suggested by surgeons as part of the recovery process post-surgery.

A very light pressure is applied using a rhythmic motion to encourage the lymphatic fluid to move back into the lymph nodes, helping to reduce swelling and reducing tissue congestion. The lymphatic system is very superficial so only a very light pressure should be applied to perform the treatment effectively.
