Manual Lymph Drainage
What is Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)?
Manual Lymph Drainage is a gentle type therapy used to drain excess fluid from the body and improve the overall functioning of the lymphatic (immune) system.
What Conditions can it treat?
Manual Lymph Drainage is most commonly used to treat Lymphedema. Lymphoedema is a swelling of tissue due to blockage or absence of lymph drainage channels. It can also assist in the successful healing of bone breaks, torn ligaments, sprains, swollen legs and ankles, and headaches.
What to Expect during MLD?
MLD is applied in gentle strokes towards the heart. Your therapist will gently massage you in the direction of lymph flow in order to unblock any obstructed lymph vessels, and allow lymph flow to transport waste from the body freely, resulting in a general detoxification of the system.
