Manual Lymphatic Drainage

MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE (MLD)

MLD is a type of massage that encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back towards the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth cells in the walls of the lymph vessels (peristalsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel the lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then to the lymph ducts which returns lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
