Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

This is a slow relaxing treatment where the fingers and hands move in gentle light-touch subtle movements activating the lymph and interstitial fluid circulation. The complete body can be treated and this is excellent for fluid retention and relaxation as the parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated.

Specific areas of the body can also be drained according to the condition being treated. All manual lymph drainage techniques have specific similarities in that the fingers and hands move the skin in rhythmic movements encouraging the lymphatic vessels to contract in a more organised way. Repetitive light movements are used and these are adjusted according to the type of tissue being worked.
