The Manual Lymphatic Drainage Diploma is designed as another "add-on" technique for qualified massage therapists, who want to expand the range of therapies they can offer their clients.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialised massage therapy in which the practitioner uses a range of specialised and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to move the skin in the direction of the lymph flow. This stimulates the lymphatic vessels which carry substances vital to the defence of the body and removes waste products. This advanced therapy is designed to cleanse, relax and have a powerful effect on the immune system.
MLD is probably best known for the treatment of lymphoedema, swelling that is often seen in response to cancer surgery. The technique can be used to prevent the onset of lymphoedema or to alleviate an existing condition.
