Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy is a very gentle effleurage massage using a variety of different techniques such as pumping, scooping, rotaries and stationary circles.
For lymph fluid to be transported around the body and through the lymphatic system, it needs muscular contraction to stimulate the lymph valves to open and shut, pushing the fluid in an upwards movement towards the neck area. This is done quite easily with just the hands, gently moving over the skin, draining the excess fluid into another area of the body that is not overloaded and congested with excess fluid.
The four main components of MLD are:
* Lymphatic Drainage
* Skin care
* Compression bandaging and garments
* Exercise and diet
MLD is an important treatment for those who have Lymphoedema as well as other conditions that involve swelling, problems with the lymphatic system and poor detoxification. ( Please go to the benefits of MLD).
