Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage
What is Lymph & the lymphatic system?
Lymph is made up of 96% water and 4% proteins. The purpose of the lymphatic system is to provide a filter to remove toxins and other microbial wastes from our body.
The goal in lymphatic massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage is to reduce or relieve the build up of lymph which may be caused by blocks in the lymphatic system, illness, or even as a result from medical procedure. MLD is not only for individuals experiencing swelling (edema). MLD can be performed to simply encourage the movement & flow of lymph around the body as an aid in detoxing, or for maintaining health. Lymphatic massage is light and does not require a great amount of pressure.
