Manual lymph drainage (mld)
MLD is a very light rhythmic technique that induces relaxation and reduces edema. Edema can occur anywhere in the body and is not always as obvious as swollen ankles at the end of a long day. Micro edemas in the body can cause the body to work harder to stay healthy. This is stressful for the body. Not only does MLD reduce this edema, it also helps the body relax. It feels good and it is good for you. MLD is different than massage. It has a much lighter touch yet has profound effects. Sometimes less really is more.
MLD has a cumulative benefit. In order to truly realize the benefits of MLD, sessions are usually scheduled close together for the first few weeks. Once benefits are sustainable, sessions are typically less frequent.
