What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage and how can MLD help you?

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an effective and soothing treatment to assist the immune system, also helps with fluid retention and congestion.  MLD can be used immediately after sports injuries and post surgery or for anyone that wants to detox!

What is the Lymphatic System and why is it important?

The Lymphatic System acts as the garbage collectors of the body- it is responsible of eliminating waste products, which is why its so important.  It consists of a network of tubes throughout the body that drains fluid (called lymph) from tissues  to be filtered and empties it back into the bloodstream.  However unlike blood that gets pumped by your heart the lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump and it relies on our veins to pump the fluid- so if your not getting your heart rate up you wont have a sufficient amount of lymph flow!  This is why MLD is so effective.

MLD CAN HELP WITH

  • Bloating
  • Fluid retention
  • Cellulite
  • Arthritis
  • Post surgery
  • Inflammation
  • Detoxing
  • Just to name a few

How MLD is preformed.

MLD is suggested to have 3-4 sessions for best results,  you will feel the difference from your first session however you need to follow up in order to keep these results long term

The process involved starts with opening the lymph nodes then draining of the lymph fluid toward the grands this will allow any blocked or sluggish lymph flow to be filtered and fresh nutrients delivered to the body.

The lymphatic System I think its the most important system in the body and the one we know so little about.
