LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE

(MLD)

MLD is a very specialized therapeutic massage that helps reduce edema and swelling.

Health conditions can interrupt the normal flow of lymph, causing lymph fluid to build up in a particular area of the body, often in the arms or legs, where it can causing swelling. This condition is called lymphedema.   People can develop lymphedema as a result of infections, cancer treatments that involve the removal of lymph nodes, and any condition that damages the lymphatic system.

Based on four basic strokes (APPLIED GENTLY AND VERY SLOW) known as "stationary circle", "pump", "rotary" and "scoop" techniques are designed to manipulate lymph nodes and lymphatic vessels with the goal of increasing their activity and promote the flow of lymph.

Benefits:

- Removes metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins and foreign substances from the tissues.

- Through its gentle rhythmical precise hand movements, alleviates pain by greatly reducing the pain signals sent to the brain.

- releases the sympathetic nervous system, thus helping to relieve stress.

- Helps the body to heal more quickly from injuries, surgical trauma, chronic conditions and edema.

- Helps to minimize scar tissue.
