MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a body wellness treatment session. This is based on preliminary evidence which is hypothesized to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back towards the heart.
Lightness of touch in Authentic MLD is essential so as not to trigger a release of histamines in the tissue
which would otherwise overstimulate. Therefore kneading and deep massage shouldn't apply during MLD.

HOW MLD (MANUAL LYMPHATIC MASSAGE) BENEFITS OUR BODY ?
MLD may relieve symptoms of a variety of ailments, including migraine and chronic headaches, common acne and acne rosacea, constipation, eczema, tinnitus, Ménière’s, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid and osteo arthritis, sinus congestion and chronic catarrh, tendonitis, repetitive strain injury, whiplash and other trauma. It is sometimes prescribed following surgical procedures due to its ability to reduce tissue swelling and promote healing. It is to restore equilibrium in the tissues and ensure that 'that which enters equals that which departs'. If the body is not in this state of equilibrium, and there is too much fluid in the tissues, they become soft and 'boggy' to the touch. If excess fluid is present it can interfere with cell nutrition – oxygen and nutrients will take longer to pass through the tissues and get from the bloodstream to the cells through the interstitial fluid. This will also mean that waste products from cell metabolism will take longer to move from cells to the transport system, which will remove them from the body. If the lymphatic system is functioning well, we feel well.
Damage to the lymph transport system – the lymph vessels or lymph nodes can lead to oedema known as lymphoedema. Lymphoedema can result in massively swollen limbs and can have a major impact on the sufferer and can mean reduced mobility, low self-esteem, inconvenience, discomfort and pain.
