Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
MLD is a very gentle technique, quite different from regular massage.
Discovered by Dr.Vodder in the 1930's this method of healing is now considered an important tool in lymphoedema management. MLD uses soft, wave-like movements to activate the lymph circulation so that excess fluids can drain away normally. MLD increases immune function and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system to calm the body enabling us to sleep, rest and heal.
