Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an advanced therapy using a range of specialised and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to move the skin in the direction of lymph flow.
MDL is widely accepted as a part of the treatment and control of lymphoedema.
It is important to know that Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a relatively superficial treatment as 70% of the lymphatic vessels are superficial. It is painless, so is suitable for people who have a high pain levels, or sensitivity, or where the soft tissue is fragile.
It can be used in combination with other types of manual treatment of massage.
