Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) speeds up the removal of wastes and fluid 20 times faster!
From the word itself, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, it involves the lymphatic system.
Most people probably don’t know what the lymphatic system is and what it does for the body. It is part of the circulatory system, consisting of a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph back to the blood. Unlike blood, which flows throughout the body in a continuous loop, lymph flows in only one direction – towards the heart returning the lymph into the blood.
Another main function of it is providing defense in the immune system. It contains lymphocytes and other white blood cells. As we about our daily activities, we come into contact with all types of foreign bodies which have the potential to make us sick. Manual lymphatic drainage is a highly specialized gentle massage using very accurate hand rhythm, pressure, and sequence applied on the face intended to encourage natural flow of the lymph in the head.
Compared to the usual massage, the pressure applied with manual lymph drainage is much lower in strength. The massage works at a skin level manipulating the lymphatic structures located in the subcutaneous tissues to influence the direction and speed of lymphatic flow.
It supports the flushing of toxins from the body, drainage of sinuses, and reduction of fluid retention in the face. This is to re-route the flow of stagnated lymphatic fluid around blocked areas into more centrally located healthy lymphatic vessels which drains into the venous system.
Aside from boosting the immune system, detoxification, and relieving congestion, MLD promotes healthy, well hydrated, firm, smooth, and glowing skin.
Recommended Treatment Plan
I recommend 6 treatments, 2 treatments the first week and then once a week for the following 4 four weeks.
What to Expect Post Treatment
Typically after a treatment you can expect skin to look clearer and feel softer, eyes to be brighter, dark areas below the eyes to lighten, puffiness and congestion to reduce and a more defined jaw-line.
