MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE

What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

This is an advanced therapy in which a range of specialised and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques are used to move the skin in the direction of the lymph flow.  This takes place directly on the skin and is without the use of oil. It stimulates the lymphatic vessels which carry substances that are vital for the defence of the body and removes waste products.  The Lymphatic System also transports nutrients and  hormones to cells. MLD has been found to rectify metabolic dysfunctions in the fluid between the cells (known as the interstitium). 

 

This is a technique that "speaks" directly to the Lymphatic System and Nervous system, so it is detoxifying and an excellent treatment for those who are highly stressed out as it soothes and eases the nervous system! Having an easeful nervous system, induces the relaxation response, and helps to reduce inflammation in the body, which is one of the primary effects of MLD. It lowers cortisol levels and is also a very effective treatment to have if you suffer from recurrent infections and need to boost your Lymphatic system. A few treatments are recommended in order to support and build up the immune system's ability to cleanse and clear the body.
