Manual Lymphatic Drainage

MLDis a therapeutic massage treatment. The massage uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase lymphatic flow, with the aim of getting rid of toxins in your body.

The lymph system is part of your body’s immune system; lymph helps fight infection and acts as a toxin filter. There are around twice as many lymph vessels as blood vessels in your body. However, unlike blood, which is pumped around your body by your heart, the lymph system has no pump. Lymph relies on the pressure from your blood vessels and movement from your muscles to carry white blood cells and antibodies around the lymph system.

Lymph transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, collecting toxins on the way and then flushing the toxins out through the lymph nodes. Drinking alcohol, eating too much sugar, drinking too much tea and coffee, living stressed lives in polluted cities — there are many reasons these days why our bodies are full of toxins.
