Manual Lymph Drainage

Manual Lymph Drainage at The Retreat with Marian Hardiman

MLD has been described as “one of the best kept secrets on the health and beauty scene”. MLD’s intensely relaxing effect masks the strength of the treatment itself. It is a very gentle, light touch massage that improves the efficiency of the lymphatic system. It increases the rate of removal of waste products, toxins and excess fluid from the body’s tissues. MLD is regularly prescribed to improve healing and reduce recovery time after surgery, to reduce swelling and bruising and accelerate the healing process.

A very gentle treatment to support the lymphatic system that has decongestive, relaxing and pain relieving effects. MLD is an advanced massage technique using the lightest of touch to move the skin over the underlying tissues using repetitive and circular movements.

By stimulating the lymph vessel walls the MLD Therapist uses the lymph system itself to cleanse the body, reduce any swelling and strengthen the immune system.

As the stimulated lymph vessels go to work clearing the loose connective tissue of accumulated excess cells and debris, the skin not only looks clearer and cleaner – it actually is clearer and cleaner, right down to the sub-cutaneous levels.

You may

– be about to have surgery
– suffering from a chronic condition or illness (sinusitis, arthritis, acne, RSI, CPRS, etc)
– be feeling tired/run down/stressed/headachy
– have an acute inflammation (bursitis, haematoma, sprain, strain, burn)
– have pain in muscles and joints
– about to undertake a detox
– wish to reduce puffy skin on face
I did not know what to expect from the treatment. I have been very pleasantly surprised. I find it a very light technique, which is very soothing and relaxing. It compliments a more traditional massage. As a result of each treatment my limbs, where I have received the treatment, feel lighter and less restless. The texture of my skin is smoother and not as waxy. I feel all-over more physically energised.
