MLD may appear quite different from the usual massage as it uses a very delicate and gentle, rhythmic techniques without the use of oils. Following the initial consultation, a treatment plan will be devised and specific areas of the body will be worked on.

Please wear loose clothing and under wear. You may be asked to partially undress. If any part of the body is not being massaged, it will be covered up.

The lymphatic system acts a second drainage system that supports the venous system in removing foreign and unwanted substances. Lymph consists of proteins, cells and cell debris and plasma which are too large to enter the venous system and external substances such as waste products, viruses, hair dyes and glass dust. The lymph fluid is carried to some of the approximately 600 lymph nodes in the body which act as a filtering station, cleaning out everything that is harmful in the body. When the lymph nodes are blocked, it may result in disease manifesting or swelling in a localised area. Therefore, MLD is equally as important for the use of maintaining your good health, acting as a preventative as well as remedial.
