Manual lymph drainage is the third most common type of physical therapy in Europe and is widely used in the health and beauty industries. It is a lovely, gentle technique that imitates the pumping action of the lymphatic vessels, stimulating lymphatic contraction. Manual lymph drainage is performed with special manual techniques that focus on moving lymph and clearing areas of lymph congestion. The LBG helps move lymph but its key purpose is to break up protein clumps that would otherwise make the lymph thicker, less fluid and harder to circulate. Manual Lymph Drainage is a very gentle massage that uses stationary circles over the lymph nodes and superficial lymph vessels to improve the flow of lymph. If the massage is too firm the tiny lymph vessels in the skin are squashed and lymph is unable to flow.

Manual Lymph Drainage is both a preventive and a remedial treatment. It provides a major boost to the immune system. Manual lymph drainage is a gentle, skilled technique using five strokes on the surface of the skin to facilitate lymph vessel activity along specific pathways to improve lymph function. This technique increases lymph vessel activity, increases reabsorption of protein-rich fluid in the capillary bed, promotes relaxation, and has an analgesic effect.

Our system is designed to receive fluid from all of the bodies that pass through nodes which act as filters for disease, debris and excess tissue fluid. When the flow and drainage are working well our system remains healthy and fluid is dealt with efficiently. MLD facilitates the removal of metabolic wastes, excess water, large protein molecules, and foreign substances from the tissues through the lymph system. It is the treatment of choice where there is stasis of the lymph associated with high protein oedema. Massage is the systematic manipulation of the soft body tissues for therapeutic purposes. This itself gives a hint to the long history of massage.

Paraguard stretchers will be needed if you dont get your Sciatica sorted out.
