WHAT IS MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE (MLD)?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a specialized massage with precise, light, rhythmical hand movements that gently stretch the skin in a circular motion along the lymphatic pathways. Manual Lymphatic Drainage promotes the drainage of metabolic wastes from tissues and returns them to the bloodstream for excretion by the body. Nutrients and oxygen are then able to rejuvenate and restore the tissues.
WHAT ROLE DOES THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM PLAY IN THE HEALING PROCESS?
The lymph vessel system removes excess metabolic waste, excess water, toxins, bacteria, large protein molecules and foreign substances from the tissues and filters them through the lymph nodes. By accelerating the detoxification process, the healing process is also accelerated.
MANUAL LYMPHATIC MASSAGE PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING:
Accelerated post-op healing
Minimized risk of infection
Scar tissue healing
Reduces swollen ankles/puffy eyes
Improves chronic conditions such as Acne and Rosacea
