Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage
This deeply relaxing, powerful and cleansing treatment is not your typical massage, it’s gentle rhythmical movements stimulate and influence the direction and speed of the lymph through the lymphatic vessels and nodes to great effect.
The lymphatic system moves slowly due to not having a pump, which means it can easily become overloaded, sluggish and congested. The lymph vessels lie just beneath the skin and facilitate the removal of metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins, bacteria, large protein molecules and foreign substances from the tissues.
MLD (manual lymphatic drainage) relaxes the sympathetic nervous system, reduces pain and enhances the activity of the immune system. It is effective in the treatment of a wide variety of problems including oedema (swelling), skin disorders, headaches, sinus congestion, stress, sprains and aches and before and after surgery to remove tissue congestion. It is particularly useful in improving the healing process and reducing recovery time after surgery, post-mastectomy therapy and cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, breast surgery or facial surgery.
MLD (manual lymphatic drainage) is extremely gentle and wonderfully relaxing.
Sasha Ball is one of our wonderful massage therapists and this facebook review sums up just how well Chiropractic and massage complement each other.
‘I’ve been attending this clinic for around a year. I first came with sciatica and now, incredibly, it’s gone. Rachel has a deep insight for healing through her practice. I have regular monthly adjustment and I’m now better than I’ve been for years. I complement this with regular massage therapy from Sasha at the clinic. This practice is unique as it offers a fully holistic treatment plan that lifts, heals and rejuvenates. Thoroughly recommended’.
