Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back towards the heart. The aim is to encourage the lymph fluid to move away from the swollen area, so it can drain normally. It also helps lymph fluid drain through the healthy lymph vessels, which helps control swelling. Unlike blood which is pumped around by your heart, the lymph system has no pump. The pressure from your blood vessels and movement from your muscles push the lymphatic fluid around. A healthy, active lymphatic system uses the natural movements of smooth muscle tissue to do this.
Manual lymphatic drainage massage is very therapeutic, using very light pressure with long gentle rhythmic and repetitive strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body. Sometimes referred to as a ‘Detox Massage’, this type of massage will support your body’s internal filtration mechanisms and help boost your immune system. The lymph system is part of your body's immune system and helps fight infection. Lymph itself is a clear, slightly yellow fluid.
Surgery and medical conditions can cause fluids to build up in your lymph system and your lymph nodes. Procedures that affect or remove your lymph nodes can cause lymphedema as a side effect. Swelling also known as edema, can happen anywhere in the body. It’s commonly seen in the hands, arms, feet, ankles, and legs.
MLD can also benefit you if you are experiencing Fibromyalgia, Skin disorders, Fatigue, Insomnia, Stress, Digestive Conditions, Arthritis, Migraines, wound healing and scarring from surgery.
Lymphatic drainage is frequently recommended by plastic surgeons during the recovery phase following cosmetic liposuction. As it decrease swelling, pain and bruising.This specialised form of massage helps to decrease recovery time and improve results, by reducing post-surgical swelling and fibrosis (scar tissue formation).
It can also boost your immune system if you suffer from colds and flu regularly. Or if you have Post-viral symptoms like muscle pain, general weakness, sleep difficulties, joint pain, cognitive fatigue or low mood.
If you have Cellulite it can be reduced on the tops of your legs, stomach and back. Improving the look and feel of your skin and fatty deposits.
If you are receiving Cancer treatment at present you will need to see an Oncology MLD Therapist. Claire Gurney at Treat is specially trained in Oncology Massage.
