Could MLD help you?

January 25, 2015

blogManual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a highly specialised form of massage, which uses light, rhythmical, very precise hand movements, pressures and sequences.The massage works at a skin level to influence the direction and speed of lymphatic flow, re-directing if necessary.

A treatment commences at the neck to clear the area and ‘make space’ for lymph to be brought there. The next part of the sequence will depend entirely on why MLD is being performed and the particular needs of the individual. There are over 60 different ailments and conditions for which MLD is indicated – these include migraine and chronic headaches, common acne and acne rosacea, constipation, eczema, tinnitus, Ménière’s, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid and osteo arthritis, sinus congestion and chronic catarrh and tendonitis.

It is as effective on swollen feet of a person who has been standing all day, as it is on the swollen leg’s of a person suffering from lymphoedema or during pregnancy.

MLD is also an effective treatment for localised post-traumatic oedema after bruising, distortion, fracture, dislocation or surgical procedures.
