Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

What is it?

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is an advanced system of specific techniques. These gentle pumping like movements are applied to the skin (no oil is used) in the direction of the lymph to encourage the removal and filtering of the toxins and excess fluids from cells as well as boosting the body’s natural immunity.

This treatment is mainly used for clearing the congestion, waste and fluid from the system and therefore helps with: fluid retention, oedema (swelling), cellulite, acne, headaches, migraines, respiratory congestion and tiredness which all result from poor lymphatic circulation. It can also help after surgery (i.e. liposuction) for faster recovery, reducing appearance of scarring and bruising (for this you will need GP consent).

Facial MLD works great in reducing congestion in the face, including tired or puffy eyes, and prevents formation of wrinkles. It is also very helpful for acne prone complections.

Regular treatments have great effects on your skin, leaving you looking younger, glowing and toned. It will also boost your metabolism, and you will feel invigorated with more energy to get on with your life.
