Manual Lymphatic Drainage - Certified
What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage? Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD) is a gentle, rhythmic technique using four Vodder strokes that dramatically increase lymph flow, movement and direction of fluid to healthy pathways and nodes to be cleared and filtered.
Lymphatic drainage massage relieves swelling that happens when medical treatments or illness block or overwhelm your lymphatic system.
The lymphatic system plays a vital supporting role in both your cardiovascular and immune system. The L.S. is responsible for helping to maintain normal blood volume, fluid levels, homeostasis: by returning most of the fluid that has been diverted into the interstitium and picked up by lymph vessels as fluid containing proteins, cell fragments (debris), water, pathogens, bacteria, viruses, cancerous cells, antigens and more, then directed to the regional lymph nodes (600-700 in the body) to inspect and cleanse the lymph as it passes through, where it gobbles up bacteria and antigens, creating lymphocytes and alerting supporting immune tissues and organs ( if need be).
The filtered lymph from all areas of the body is eventually returned to the blood through the Subclavian Vein. Returning this fluid to the blood prevents edema or lymphedema; excess accumulation of fluid around tissues.
