MLD is a very specialised type of massage called Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an important part of the treatment for many conditions, including Sinusitis, Hay fever, Dermalogical conditions, Post surgical conditions, Carpal tunnel and more.
Why Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
The lymphatic system is the front line for defense in our bodies, in the ability to fight disease and infection.
It is also involved in detoxifying the body (like our own waste disposal unit) and transporting metabolic waste, excess fluid, toxins, and bacteria out of the body. Daily stresses, fatigue, emotional shock, chemical overloading, infection, food preservatives and many other things can greatly impair the functioning of healthy tissues and healthy lymphatic pathways. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a very specific massage technique which helps our body to refresh and rejuvenate its fluids and also to establish resistance to all types of stress that our system is placed under. MLD encourages the natural circulation of lymph fluid through our bodies.
MLD is not a muscular massage, but essentially Danny will work above the muscle fascia as 70% of lymphatic fluid is found here .Danny will use mild mechanical stretching of the connective tissue to facilitate decongestion of lymph ducts. A typical liver de-tox program of say 12 weeks will take 1 session of MLD, to successfully drain out any toxins as well as carrying vital substances to areas where they are needed, thus hastening healing times. Recent scientific research tested ten thousand breast cancer patients post surgery reporting that 70% of patients had a reduction in fluid volume in the area post MLD. It stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system enhancing the relaxation effect; reducing pain by sedating sensory nerve endings and this in turn also inhibits extreme muscle tonus.
It also stimulates the immune system by leaving waste and germs inside the nodes to be destroyed and transporting Lymphocytes,(specialized white blood cells that produce anti bodies to fight infection)out of our node.According to research conducted by Bruno Chikly, the body produces 30% more immune component cells post and MLD treatment.
Danny Peraic has had many years of experience using the Manual lymphatic drainage technique which differs from ordinary massage – it is very gentle and aims to encourage movement of lymph away from affected areas. MLD is particularly useful if there is swelling in the face, breast, abdomen, genitals, and ankles or elsewhere on the trunk.
Many benefits have been experienced after just one treatment of an MLD.
