There many benefits from receiving Manual Lymphatic Drainage, and a lot of research has been done for this. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) has been used both as a preventative and as a remedial method.
Some of the conditions clients have used MLD for include:
- Pregnancy related water retention
- Hormonal issues
- Stress and anxiety - deeply relaxes and soothes
- Aiding a detox program
- Sinus congestion
- Migraines / Headaches
- Pre and Post dental work
- Pre and post Cosmetic surgery – to aid healing and reduce swelling
- Skin Conditions
- Puffy eyes
- Pre and post surgery – to aid recovery, reduce bruising and swelling
- Recovery from chronic infections
- Fluid congestion
- For general well being
By encouraging the removal of waste and stagnant connective tissue fluid the skin gets its nutrients more quickly and begins to look better.
Typically you can expect skin to look clearer and feel softer, eyes to be brighter, dark areas below the eyes to lighten, puffiness and congestion to reduce and a more defined jaw-line.
Head, eye, ear, nose, mouth, dental, throat, sinus and skin problems resulting from lymphatic related congestion can respond positively. Some people use this treatment to help fight the ageing process.
This is also an excellent treatment to have pre and post dental work, for any facial puffiness, ear issues, nerve pain (including Bell’s Palsy) and sinus conditions.
