Services - Lymphatic Drainage Massage

In the same way as blood circulates through our body via veins and arteries lymphatic fluid (natural immune response) travels through the body in vessels connected by lymph nodes. These nodes play an essential role in filtering the lymphatic fluid to help reduce inflammation in the body.

Often during cancer treatment, these nodes and vessels are either removed or irradiated and can become dysfunctional. This can result in Lymphedema, a condition where the lymphatic fluid in the area starts to pool and swelling results.

Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) helps to move lymphatic fluid along undamaged paths to help manage and reduce the risk of Lymphedema. This is achieved by using many gentle techniques that move the lymph from the affected area of the body.
