Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a light touch, subtle physical therapy recognized by both the international medical and spa wellness communities. Analgesic and restorative, MLD provides deep relation while accelerating cellular repair and regeneration. MLD is remarkable for pregnancy, pre and post surgeries.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) has been around since the 1930’s developed by Dr. Emil Vodder. It is meant to provide four main functions (1) sympathetic, decreasing the sympathetic system to increase the parasympathetic system to rejuvenate, (2) analgesic; pain reducing, (3) drainage, by stimulating the lymph to reduce the space; removes the substance that causes congestion, faster delivery of nutrients between the cells, and (4) immunological, by keeping the body cleansed the immune system is increased. The difference between MLD with the other modalities, such as massage, is that it primarily decreases filtration in the blood whereas massage increases filtration. MLD works great in combination with facials.
In general, skin conditions respond well due to the nature of MLD carrying debris away from the skin tissues and to facilitate the oxygen and nutrients delivered to the cells. This technique helps to fight water retention and removes toxins out of the peripheral tissues by boosting both blood circulation and lymph flow to naturally expels toxins, excess water and waste products. This massage is a gentle rhythmic massage that will give you a very relaxing experience.
