Manual lymphatic drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage is described as “One of the best kept secrets on the health and beauty scene”.

Manual lymphatic drainage’s intensely relaxing effect masks the strength of the treatment itself. It is a very gentle, repetitive and rhythmical light touch massage that improves the ability of the body’s lymphatic system to cleanse from the inside out

Energetic and Mind Body Effects of Manual Lymphatic drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) was developed in the 1930’s by the Danish practitioner Dr Emil Vodder and widely recognised and practised in American and European clinics to treat variety of different conditions.

Breathing techniques are also an important part of this treatment.

You’ll usually be lying down and may have to remove some of your clothing. The massage is done without any oils or creams, using the hands very gently to move the skin in a particular direction.

Lymph drainage massage has many beneficial effects beyond the physiological process such as meditative state. While stimulating lymph flow on a physiological level, MLD will relax the client breath and heart rate, resulting in a balancing  of the client energy.

The MLD Treatment – what to expect
The first visit to a trained MLD therapist will include a consultation during which the therapist will recommend the number and frequency of future sessions. Each session will last approximately one hour. Where appropriate the therapist will work in conjunction with your medical practitioner

Lymphatic drainage is a specialized hand technique that consists of very gentle and rhythmic movements, administered by a highly trained therapist. Each stroke slightly moves the skin in the direction of the lymphatic flow to encourage the drainage of fluid and waste. Depending what your complaints are, the focus of a lymph massage for general immune stimulation is typically on the upper body, including the face, neck, and arms. After your lymph massage, it’s important to drink plenty of water, reduce your salt intake and avoid alcohol.
