The Benefits of Manual Lymph Drainage aren't just for Lymphedema Patients


Benefits

MLD is performed by a therapist specializing in this. Not to be confused with a conventional massage. The purpose of MLD is to stimulate the pulsation of the lymph vessel walls, accelerating drainage of the lymph in the vessels that are still functioning. Allowing more of the accumulated fluid to be carried away by the lymph capillaries, reducing edema.

Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is performed by a therapist specializing in MLD. MLD is not to be confused with a conventional massage, it is very light. The purpose of MLD is to stimulate the pulsation of the lymph vessel walls, accelerating drainage of the lymph in the vessels. Performing this in a “healthy” system or on someone who does not have damage to the lymphatic system can still benefit from stimulating this body system. MLD will allow new fluid to circulate freely, bringing water, nutrients and oxygen to cells- promoting health and healing. Clearing sluggish, blocked or stagnant areas, eliminating their toxic effects.

MLD detoxifies and eliminates waste and toxins, improves metabolism and helps support the immune system. It can accelerate the shedding of environmental pollutants and stress chemicals while providing a long-lasting energy boost.
