Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage

lymphatic massage

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of gentle massage which encourages the natural circulation of the lymph through the body. The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels and ducts that move fluid throughout the body and is responsible for moving toxins away from healthy cells and carrying germ-fighting materials to cells when they are under attack by viruses. A lymphatic drainage massage primarily focuses on specific lymph nodes and points of the body, as well as the natural flow of the lymphatic system. It is beneficial treating chronic lymph edema, lymph edema caused by surgery, breast health and congestion, swelling, sinusitis, detoxification and overall supports the immune system.
