Manual Lymphatic Drainage

What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?

MLD is a very special type of massage designed to stimulate the lymphatic system. It’s a light-pressure, skin-deep massage technique designed to encourage drainage of any excess fluid from any swollen areas into a place where the lymphatic system is working normally., for example, around a recent injury or surgery site.

To do this, the therapist uses specialised movements to clear the area that they want the fluid to drain into. It might seem strange to have your chest and neck manipulated if you have lymphoedema in your arm, for example, but it means that the fluid has somewhere to drain to when the therapist treats your arm.

It can also be performed with skin disorders, headache, sinus congestion, aches or digestive disorders as it has cleansing, relaxing, pain relieving and immunological effects.  Manual Lympthatic Drainage is also highly recommended alongside weight loss or detoxing programmes and after liposuction procedures.



Here’s a testimonial from a patient who has regular Manual Lymphatic Drainage with us:

“I broke two bones in my foot, had DVT in the same leg and have also had a vein reduction operation. I’m now on blood thinners as a result. The MLD massage stops the pressurised feeling in my leg and hugely reduces the symptoms of itchiness, numbness, pins and needles, prickly heat and swelling. Virginie’s treatment is a game changer for me, I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
