Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

History of MLD

The lymphatic system is a significant component of the body's immune function. This closed, one-way system consists of lymphatic fluid, capillaries, vessels, lymph nodes and organs. Lymph nodes are bean-shaped filters strategically placed along lymphatic vessels. Lymphatic vessels, responsible for transporting lymphatic fluid, rely on lymph nodes for the purification and elimination of toxins and debris.

Lymphatic fluid hydrates the extracellular space which lies between the vascular, muscular, nerve and organ structures. The lymphatic system helps maintain and protect the internal fluid environment of the entire body. Immune function and tissue health depend greatly on proper lymphatic circulation.

Any alteration within the body, organic or surgical, can affect the direction and efficiency of lymphatic fluid flow. As a result, lymph can stagnate and begin to solidify, creating painful pressure and dis-ease. MLD is a gentle technique designed to increase the lymphatic system's flow and filtration capability. By stimulating the lymphatic system and encouraging the body to re-absorb cellular debris (often the result of tissue damage/degeneration), the pathways between systems become uncluttered, allowing proper cellular communication, function and hydration.

By encouraging the superficial network of lymphatic capillaries as well as lymph node stimulation, a trained MLD therapist can successfully guide a compromised lymphatic system to function with efficiency. MLD stabilizes tissue integrity; tissue damage and potential infection can be prevented. MLD is a non-invasive therapy, which maximizes the body's immune and elimination potential.
