Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Do you ever wonder why your chronic pain persists despite therapy and medication? Your lymphatic system may be obstructed. When the body does not have the ability to get rid of cellular waste, it creates inflammation which impedes the cellular regeneration/healing process.

The lymphatic system is the filtration network of the body that gets rid of cellular waste. When this system is overloaded, the body relies more on the other detox organs (kidney, liver, lungs fat and skin).

The body, with the exception of nails, hair and cartilage, bathes in lymphatic fluid. The lymphatic system works in unison with the immune system (as it is the first line of defense), with the circulatory system, and the gastrointestinal system. It maintains the PH level in the body by removing excess proteins from the interstitial fluid.

During a lymph drainage massage, a specially-trained massage therapist uses a series of gliding, compressing, stretching, and cupping motions over the client’s body. The light rhythmic movements stimulate the lymphatic system without compressing the vessels – allowing lymph to move easily through the tissues and lymph nodes. MLD follows a specific sequence over the body so lymph isn’t trapped anywhere, making sure every area is treated with care.

*Lymphatic drainage can be completed over clothing if desired, loose clothing should be worn or brought to the appointment if this option is wanted.

Pre & Post Surgery MLD

Pre-surgery MLD improves cellular waste movement and primes the body for healing. Post-surgery MLD targets edema at the surgical site and includes a full-body treatment to address lymph congestion during recovery. Multiple treatments are shown to aid with reduced inflammation, smoother skin texture, faster healing, increased mobility, and decreased pain symptoms.

Immune Support MLD

Post radiation treatments, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and other immune suppression diagnosis are aided by MLD as the work helps the body remove excess metabolic waste from nodes that are suppressed, inactive or removed. The entire body and organs benefit from a reduction in systemic inflammation.

Beauty and Wellness MLD

A regular six-month full-body MLD will assist in a more balanced and functional immune system paving the way for good health. Targeted treatments during allergy or cold season help give your immune defenses a boost. Migraine and chronic pain sufferers have seen substantial benefits from regular MLD care. As a beauty aid, MLD treatments can be used to target cellulite (waste build-up under the skin), and puffiness in the face or the abdominal cavity.
