Manual Lymphatic Drainage Treatment (MLD)
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle, flowing, rhythmic massage which encourages the natural drainage of the lymph. Specific movements and pressure stimulate the lymph flow. Often Manual Lymphatic Drainage is used to reduce pain and enhance immune system activity. It also creates a feeling of well-being which makes it a great treatment to apply to a wide range of physical conditions.
