What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage MLD / LDM

Manual lymph drainage massage is a very gentle form of massage therapy aimed at improving the flow of lymph under the skin using specialised techniques. Lymph flow is stimulated by applying pressure and performing specific rhythmic movements to the body, to influence the lymphatic flow.

The massage techniques used are catered just for lymph drainage. This massage is designed to activate the musculature of the lymph vessel so they can contract more often, with the aim to improve blood circulation for more efficient waste disposal. Additionally, manual lymphatic drainage is a very relaxing massage that may help reduce stress levels. Manual lymphatic drainage massage can be performed both with and without massage oils.

When is Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage typically used?

MLD massage is typically advised post-surgery. Individuals who have recently received liposuction find MLD therapy particularly beneficial. Your immune system is linked to your lymphatic system. Therefore this type of treatment is perfect for those who have recently had surgery. However, it is important to seek the advice of your GP or a consultant before proceeding. Manual lymphatic drainage massage is often performed on:

  • Post-surgery clients
  • Clients who have had cosmetic surgery such as liposuction
  • Clients who have had lymph node removal
  •  Clients with a tendency to bloating and swelling

We always want to make sure there is a healthy amount of flow. As a result, the pressure is very important with this treatment. This is why light and superficial pressure is done throughout the treatment. Depending on what areas are more swollen will dictate the type of massage that is required.

What is the Lymphatic System?

The lymphatic system is a network of thin vessels through which a watery fluid called lymph flows. The lymphatic system is a part of the immune system and is essentially the body’s drainage system which cleans up and disposes of all the waste products left behind by other systems of the body. The waste can come from the normal breakdown of active muscle and from the food you eat. The lymphatic system also plays important roles in maintaining the body’s fluid levels, protecting the body from illnesses and helps to absorb fats from the body’s digestive tract.

What are the functions of the Lymphatic System?

Having a healthy active lifestyle (eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, exercising and managing stress) will also help to keep a healthy and well functioning lymphatic system.
