Indications for MLD
Manual Lymph Drainage facilitates the healing of injuries, chronic conditions, inflammations and edemas by: 1) cleansing the connective tissue of inflammatory agents and toxins; 2) enhancing the activity of the immune system; 3) decreasing pain; and 4) stimulating the functioning of the parasympathetic nervous system. As a result, MLD is a highly effective treatment and/or method of preventative maintenance for:
Lymphedema • Oral/Cosmetic Surgery • Whiplash • Sinusitis • Acne • Depression • Sprains & Fractures • Skin care • Sleep disorders • PMS/Menstrual cramps • Pregnancy related swelling • Joint dislocations • Relaxation • Burns • Varicose Veins • Anxiety & Stress Reduction • Chronic/Acute inflammation • Carpal Tunnel & other Repetitive Strains • Arthritis • Glaucoma • Headaches & Migraines • Tendonitis • Ulcers • Raynaud’s Syndrome • Rheumatic Diseases • Fascial Restrictions • Multiple Sclerosis • Traumatic & Sport related injuries • Scars (reduction immediately post surgery) • Chronic Infection Cycles (i.e. bronchitis, tonsilitis)
What to Expect From an MLD Treatment
The techniques performed by a therapist certified in Manual Lymph Drainage during treatment are very specific and effective at increasing the rate of removal of waste products, toxins and excess fluid from the body's tissues. However, don’t expect to have an invigorating massage experience. MLD treatments are specifically for boosting the circulation of the lymphatic system, and the effects of a treatment may not be felt until well after it’s over. What’s more, when MLD is combined with other subtle therapies, treatment schedules are shortened and tissues are re-balanced which often prevents the reoccurrence of symptoms.
