Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Overview of the treatment

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a very gentle and effective massage technique that encourages stimulation of the Lymphatic System, the body’s plumbing system. This system has a vital role in the body by regulating the immune system. The Lymphatic System transports nutrient to cell and eliminates metabolic wastes, toxins and excess fluid from the body.

Ailments which can be treated by this therapy

Manual Lymphatic Drainage promotes the healing of fractures, torn ligaments, sprains and lessens pain. It strengthens the immune system. It can also relieve swollen ankles, tired puffy eyes and swollen legs due to pregnancy. Manual Lymphatic Drainage promotes healing of wounds and burns and improves the appearance of old scars. It minimizes or reduces stretch marks.

How the treatment is done

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a rhythmical and deeply relaxing massage where the skin is methodically stretched towards the directions of lymphatic flow. It is very important because when the lymphatic system becomes blocked, lymphatic fluid builds up and stagnate causing the entire system to become toxic. The reduction of excess fluid, metabolic waste can also lead to weight reduction.
