Why Do People Get Our MLD Massage?
The lymphatic system is responsible for helping fluid and waste toxins leave the body, therefore regulating the body’s immune system. When the lymphatic system is overly stressed or becomes blocked, fluid builds up and stagnates increasing the overall levels of toxins within the body. One feels sluggish and more susceptible to viral or contagious diseases.
Our spa therapist applies MLD techniques to facilitate the removal of metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins, bacteria, large protein molecules, and foreign substances from tissue via the initial lymph vessels and the venous capillaries. The detoxifying treatment can improve energy levels, increase cellular oxygenation and nourishment, and build immunity. It also helps to reduce cellulite and toxins in the body by breaking down fatty deposits. People get MLD treatments for a variety of health conditions:
What Can I Expect During My MLD Massage?
The MLD massage is a very delicate treatment involving very light stroking of the body over the appropriate areas to stimulate lymph flow and then applying a sweeping motion towards the nearest major lymph drainage watersheds. Unlike some other forms of massage, lymphatic drainage uses a very light pressure combined with soft pumping movements in the direction of the lymph nodes. As gentle pressure is used, hence there is little or no risk of tissue injury.
As the treatment session unfolds, lymphatic blockages are cleared and the toxins will naturally be loosened and dissipated subsequently through the lymphatic system. You may feel thirsty and increased lethargy after the treatment but this will be temporary due to the stimulated dissipation of the built-up toxins within the body.
For optimal healing effect and maximum rejuvenation of the body lymphatic system, we recommend that you opt for at least 6-8 sessions of regular MLD treatments.
