MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE

Restore lymphatic flow

MLD is a very light pressure therapy used to stimulate the lymphatic system. The amount of lymph fluid being circulated back to the heart in a 24 hour span goes from about 1.5-2L pre-treatment to 10-20L post treatment which can last up to 72 hours! It also increases our immune system by 20%-30% post treatment!!

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is helpful with:

  • All types of swelling, especially Lymphedema

  • Pre/Post surgery to reduce swelling and speed up the healing process. Eg.) C-section, Mastectomies, Aesthetic Surgeries, etc.

  • Detoxifies on a cellular level

  • Removes excessive proteins from our bodies

  • Arthritis and inflammation in the muscles, tendons and tissues

  • Colitis, fibromyalgia and endometriosis

Results From a Combination of Reflexology and Manual Lymphatic Drainage

This picture was taken mid-treatment. Patient "A" presented severe swelling in both feet. Half way through, they were completely shocked when they noticed how much I was able to reduce the swelling within 15 mins. Their treatment included a combination of Reflexology and activating Lymph nodes to encourage the fluid to be carried out. The patient left with their feet back to normal size, drastically reducing the pain they were in and circulation really improved as the ice cold feet were now perfectly warm. The feet stayed at the reduced size for over a week before anything started to come back!

 

Results from Manual Lymphatic Drainage

I just wanted to share the difference that's taken place within the last few days since I had manual lymphatic drainage! I know everyone can retain fluid, but it wasn't until now that I noticed how much I was retaining!! Not only is my face thinner, but the extra fluid around my lower jaw and under the chin is a huge difference! No matter how "skinny", I've always had a double chin thinking it was fat, not realizing it was actually lymphatic fluid building up! I can even see my jaw line!! I can't begin to tell you how amazing this therapy is!
