Manual Lymphatic Drainage
The lymphatic system is responsible for removal of foreign bodies, cellular waste, interstitial fluid and the movement and creation of Lymphocytes.
You may have heard about the role this system plays in your immunity.
Well the lymphatic system is your Immune system!
This system can be compromised either by blockages, fluid back up, or removal of lymph nodes.
Lymphedema is a common disease of the lymphatic system.
Lymphedema is characterised by a swelling called edema that that begins in the hands or feet and moves deeper into the limbs and trunk.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage helps the system move wastes and blockages more easily.
MLD assists the healing process.
