Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an advanced therapy in which the practitioner uses a range of specialised
and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to move the skin in the direction of the lymph flow.

This stimulates the lymphatic vessels which carry substances vital to the defence of the body and removes waste products.
The first visit will include a consultation during which the therapist will recommend the number and frequency of future sessions. Each session will last approximately one hour. Where appropriate the therapist will work in conjunction with your medical practitioner.
