Manual Lymphatic Drainage
MLD stands for Manual Lymphatic Drainage. This type of massage treatment focuses on restoring balance to the lymphatic system by manually draining the lymph nodes. The lymphatic system is an important system in your body is responsible for removing waste. When it’s not functioning properly, waste might build up in certain nodes, causing issues with mental health, mobility, fatigue, bloating, and much more.
MLD massages are particularly important if you’ve had lymph nodes removed or operated on, or if you’ve had heart surgery, cosmetic surgery, or blood clots. Since there is no organ like the heart to pump lymph through our bodies, motion in this system depends entirely on our own mobility. MLD is a technique used to remove buildups and help the lymph begin to flow naturally again.
MLD treatments can:
- Help you feel energized
- Clear up chronic sinusitis
- Improve your immune system
- Provide anti-aging benefits
