I have updated my skilll set recently and can now offer manual lymphatic drainage massage.
Here’s what Neal’s Yard Remedies have to say about it:
“This is a very light, rhythmic massage technique that encourages lymph (the fluid that bathes the cells) to flow more freely around the body. The massage stimulates your lymphatic system and increases the elimination of toxins. Fluid congestion is relieved, promoting healing, strengthening the immune system and helping reduce pain. It’s particularly helpful for easing the fluid retention of pregnancy and the menstrual cycle.
MLD can help relieve the symptoms of those suffering from general lymphatic congestion and can be a useful part of a detox or cleansing diet. It can relieve the retention of fluids during pregnancy and the menstrual cycle. It can also help to: improve skin conditions, decrease stress levels, improve the general circulation and increase the functioning of the immune system.”
