Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a type of gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph nodes, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. Described as “one of the best kept secrets on the health and beauty scene”, MLD’s intensely relaxing effect masks the strength of the treatment itself MLD is regularly prescribed in Europe to improve healing and reduce recovery time after cosmetic surgery.
Treatment pre- and post-surgery is often recommended to get the lymphatic system in peak condition to help reduce swelling and bruising, keep the system operating at optimum levels to accelerate the healing process, encourage better scar formation and ultimately reveal the new you in less time. Specific and gentle movements of the skin stimulate and increase the rate of removal of waste products, toxins and excess fluid from the body’s tissues resulting in:
- reduced puffiness around the eyes
- reduced cellulite
- reduced fluid retention
