Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an advanced therapy that encourages the natural process of the lymphatic vessels to eliminate waste products and to boost your body’s defences.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is what we call a “skin technique” in which the MLD therapist uses specialized , infinitely light, rhythmic pumping techniques on the skin in order encourage lymph to move in the direction in which the skin is being stretched.This stimulates the lymphatic vessels which carry substances vital to the defense of the body and removes waste products.
MLD is used to help to treat a variety of conditions because it has a calming effect on both mind and body and as well as for treating oedemas including lymphoedema, it is also used for well being and relaxation , weight loss and detoxing .
DEEP OSCILLATION TREATMENT
Deep Oscillation® Massage Therapy originated in Germany in 2007 and uses the Hivamat to create low frequencies of gentle electrostatic impulses that ‘knead’ your skin’s tissue by contracting and releasing it between 5-250 times a second .Scientifically researched frequencies penetrate the skin tissue to depths that have been proven to remove excess inflammatory caused by products, protein solids and lymph fluid build up, thus leaving the skin to embark on its natural healing process.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage therapists combine their treatments with Hivamat Deep Oscillation® massage therapy to achieve great success for our clients suffering from Lymphoedema , or oedemas generally.
