Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an advanced therapy that encourages the natural process of the lymphatic vessels to eliminate waste products and to boost your body’s defences.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is what we call a “skin technique” in which the MLD therapist uses specialized , infinitely light, rhythmic pumping techniques on the skin in order encourage lymph to move in the direction in which the skin is being stretched. This stimulates the lymphatic vessels which carry substances vital to the defense of the body and removes waste products.
MLD is used to help to treat a variety of conditions because it has a calming effect on both mind and body and as well as for treating oedemas including lymphoedema, it is also used for well being and relaxation , weight loss and detoxing .
