Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of very light, gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels (peristalsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then beyond the lymph nodes to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
It is particularly good for detoxification, after chemotherapy/radiation, reducing inflammation and swelling, blue bruising, fluid retention, or oedema, pre and post plastic surgery and post-liposuction. Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids to increase the body’s immune system.
It is recommended that up to 4 sessions of 1-1.5hrs on a weekly basis are required.
