Manual Lymphatic Drainage invented by massage therapists Dr Emil and Mrs. Estrid Vodder in the early 1930s, is a form of therapeutic massage that stimulates the lymphatic system with gentle massaging strokes. The light rhythmical massage encourages the lymphatic system to eliminate metabolic waste products, excess fluid and bacteria.
The effects of Manual Lymph Drainage include general benefits to the nervous and muscular systems. MLD is a great addition to other detox measures, as it encourages fluid flow in the connective tissues.
The lymphatic system is composed of lymph vessels, lymph nodes, and organs. Part of the body's defense system, the lymph nodes remove microorganisms and other foreign substances acting as a filtration system that keeps particulate matter, such as bacteria, from entering the bloodstream.
Stimulating the lymphatic system through manual lymphatic drainage will activate all of the above functions as well as encourage fluid circulation and cell regeneration. Both actions promote detoxification, facilitate healing and support the immune system.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage benefits include:
MLD benefits through:
*clearing areas of congestion such as swollen arms, legs, ankles, and puffy eyes
thereby reducing pressure and associated discomfort
*promote healing of scar tissue, torn ligaments, and sprains.
*reduce edema (swelling)
*reduction of swelling following plastic surgery
