Introducing Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
Manual Lymphatic Drainage, popularly referred to as MLD, is a gentle massage therapy that helps improve the natural circulation of lymphatic fluids in the body. It is a popular treatment administered to patients who suffer from lymphedema which is a disease characterized by blocking of the lymph nodes which eventually causes swelling of the arms and legs. Manual lymph drainage was devised in the early 1930’s in Europe where it was used as a method of detoxifying and removing regular waste accumulated in the body. Nowadays people all over the world have embraced the practice as a way to get rid of excess body fluids as well as improve the overall functionality of the lymphatic system.
As professional therapists in manual lymph drainage massage therapy, we ensure that every touch is meant to make your body more healthy and rejuvenated. A massage session is performed by gently massaging strategic points where the lymph is accumulated in order to make it flow freely. First of all, our qualified therapists apply a light form of circular massage on the client’s skin. We always recommend that the massage be performed on the bare skin without using any massage creams and lotions for it to be effective. He or she will then apply mild strokes while carefully massaging towards the heart. This method usually helps to stretch the walls of the lymph vessels which is the initial step towards promotion of lymph drainage. In order to attain satisfactory results, our massage therapists many opt for any of the ways listed below.

The therapist will then apply multiple twisting strokes on the patient’s skin in order to promote flow of lymph hence waste removal.
