Manual Lymphatic Drainage

MLD is a very gentle, light touch massage used to treat and control different types of lymphoedema or swelling in an arm, leg or a part of the body. It uses deep breathing combined with specialised gentle, pumping and draining skin techniques to help reduce swelling, cleanse the body, ease inflammation and strengthen the immune system by stimulating the flow of lymph. It can ease congested areas of fluid to reduce  inflammation and pain.

MLD can be used to treat or maintain swelling due to primary or secondary lymphoedema and lipoedema.

It can be particularly helpful for breast oedema following breast cancer treatment. It can also be used to have a positive impact on ME, fibromyalgia, pain, inflammatory conditions, auto immune conditions, arthritis, sinusitis,  scar tissue, tinnitus, burns, healing after cosmetic surgery among other conditions. It can be a deeply relaxing treatment helping to ease stress and tension.

Sessions last 50 minutes and costs £48
