Manual lymphatic drainage, also referred to as MLD, is a method of massage that helps stimulate the lymphatic system and flush toxins, waste, and fluids through the lymph nodes. In doing this, patients can address a variety of problems. It is becoming more popular as individuals are learning about its benefits. At Skintology MedSpa, our provider, Dr. Jennifer Walden, is pleased to offer manual lymphatic drainage for new and existing patients.
What is manual lymphatic drainage?
Dr. Jennifer Walden describes manual lymphatic drainage, or MLD, is a special type of bodywork. It is not necessarily a massage, but is the use of light strokes in the areas where the lymph nodes reside. With a unique technique, the lymphatic system can drain fluids considerably faster, flushing out toxins, debris, and waste faster. This is what makes it extremely beneficial for individuals who are looking to not only boost their immune system, but to enjoy the other benefits.
The treatment is best for patients who have:
- Chronic pain and inflammation
- Sinus drainage
- Poor nutrient circulation
- Lyme disease
- And more!
What can be done about congested lymphatic fluid?
When the lymphatic fluid is not properly flushing out of the body, using manual lymphatic drainage can help. This congestion, if left stagnant, can lead to inflammation and many chronic illnesses. But keeping the fluid moving through the body, it increases the amount of fluid that moves through the lymphatic system to aid in toxin removal. Many patients who start having manual lymphatic drainage massage with the team at Skintology MedSpa will see an improvement in their overall health and wellbeing and enjoy the many benefits this treatment provides.
