MANUAL LYMPH DRAINAGE
About Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)....
MLD consists of a series of slow gentle highly specialised massage-like movements which has a stimulating effect on the flow of lymph fliud.
Rhythmical pumping and draining movements are used with some deep breathing techniques to ensure that the lymph fluid of the whole body is systematically and thoroughly stimulated. This has the effect of relaxing the body and actively unblocking congested areas of fluid so reducing areas of swelling, inflammation and pain.
The lymphatic system is essential for correct immune function so when it is congested or damaged, the body's immune responses are hindered. A healthy lymph system allows the body to fight infection & viruses as well as absorb nutrients.
MLD is excellent to use as a preventative health treatment as well as to stabilise and maintain good health.
