Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

The lymphatic system is a secondary circulatory system situated just beneath the skin.

During a Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLDM) gentle rhythmic movements are used to stimulate lymph vessels and send lymph to nodes to be drained away. The massage is gentle, healing and extremely relaxing.

MLDM relaxes the sympathetic nervous system whilst simultaneously enhancing the productivity of the immune system. It also helps facilitate removal of metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins, bacteria and foreign substances from tissue via the lymph vessels and venous capillaries.

Conditions that can benefit from MLDM are allergies, pre/post operative conditions, particularly where the lymph vessels have been removed, post cosmetic surgery, cellulite, digestive problems and also to help sedantary lifestyles.
