Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a gentle, non-invasive manual technique that has a powerful effect on the body. Research in Australia, Europe and North America has proven its efficacy as a stand-alone treatment and in combination with other therapies.
Developed in France in 1932 by Emil and Estrid Vodder MLD has grown to be the most well known manual technique to assist lymph flow and aid in drainage of tissues.
The skin is stretched and torqued in a specific manner, based on scientific, physiological principles that have proven to encourage lymph flow. If performed correctly with the correct pressure, direction and speed, this can greatly enhance recovery and facilitate drainage. Manual Lymph Drainage can be utilized in the treatment of many different conditions including such as non-infected inflammatory conditions such as (sprains and strains) as well as dermatological conditions. Beyond a radiant complexion, lymphatic drainage facials act as a face workout: The massage strengthens your facial muscles, boosts oxygen flow, and releases endorphins. This offsets negative affects of adrenaline, like stress. With pumping lymph you'll look amazing and feel amazing. Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD) can aid in pre- and post- plastic surgery procedures.
