Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage massage, also commonly referred to as MLD massage, is a gentle massage modality that encourages the movement of lymph fluid through the body.
This massage is not your typical massage, as its focus is not on the muscles, but on the lymphatic system which is part of your immune system and runs side by side with your circulatory system.
This massage is incredibly relaxing and therapeutic, it can greatly reduce anxiety and stress. The touch throughout the massage is only skin deep, as it is focusing on moving the Lymph from any blocked areas in the body and improving the circulation.
This massage technique reduces swelling in body areas, particularly in the arms, legs and ankles making the body appear thinner. The massage is designed to flush out toxins or waste in the body, and unblock any hard or uneven areas of lymph and remove them by shifting the lymph to the nearest lymph nodules.
This treatment is particularly popular with patients who have had Vaser Liposuction Surgery, as they can get fluid build up post op, this massage will help to remove this build up and flush out any residual toxins and reduce inflammation.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage can help with Swelling, fatigue, insomnia, stress, digestive problems, arthritis & migraine episodes.

Arrival: What to expect
Please arrive 10-15mins before your start time to organise paperwork if not already completed, and get ready for your massage. I will give you space and time to undress privately and lie down on the massage table, and cover yourself with a towel. Please note that you MUST wear underwear at all times, for any treatment. It is important to note that I am a professional Massage Therapist, trained to give professional treatments.
By default, I will play some relaxing music during your massage, as it can help you to unwind. Don't be afraid to say if you'd prefer not to have it - or indeed if you're unhappy with anything else in the treatment room. Being content in your surroundings is important for relaxation and will help you sink happily into your massage. The same goes for talking. Some people like to chat a bit; others don't. It doesn't matter as long as you're comfortable, relaxed and receptive.
I will ask about the pressure I am applying during the massage, if at any point you are not comfortable with the pressure, please feel free to communicate.
After the treatment, you'll probably feel quite relaxed and maybe even sleepy, so give yourself plenty of time to unwind. All massage can leave you feeling thirsty - this is because your body is flushing out toxins. Drink plenty of water afterwards and you will start to feel right as rain again.
