Why should we consider to have manual lymphatic drainage (MLD)?

Well the answer is simple -the blood has the heart to pump blood around the body but the lymph relies purely on smooth muscles to transport. Because lymph carries waste and toxins when it becomes stagnant it can cause a lot of knock on issues in the body.

Having MLD can have some amazing benefits and is good to help alleviate symptoms of fibromyalgia, migraine episodes fatigue, stress, arthritis, digestive problems , cellulite, faster recovery after surgery to name a few.

The massage is light and gentle and can help awaken the immune system. Pregnant ladies also benefit from this massage – MLD can be very beneficial for tired feet and water retention.

How does the Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) work?

It’s a gentle and yet powerful massage technique to stimulate the lymphatic system. This technique uses low pressure and precise massaging movements to stimulate the lymph vessels that are situated just under the skin.

This technique increases the circulation of the lymphatic system and speeds up the cleansing process. This leads to balancing the fluids in our tissues and reduction in swelling (oedema). MLD has a smoothening and relaxing effect and also improves the immune system.

Our MLD specialists are specially trained for this technique as it requires advanced skill for precise, rhythmic and light pressure movements.

When can I see results with Lymphatic Massage (MLD)?

While you may notice changes in your body as early as 24-48 hours after the first massage, the number of treatments depends on your physical condition. The first two massages help to decongest the lymphatic system and the subsequent massages help to improve the circulation. We recommend weekly massages for the first month and once a month maintenance for smooth flow.

A patient recovering from surgery will have different needs from a patient who is looking for a detox and recharge plan. The treatment plan will be formulated based on your medical condition and requirements, and your ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
