Manual Lymphatic Drainage MLD

Manual lymphatic drainage is a technique used to gently work and stimulate the lymphatic system, to assist in reduction of localized swelling. The lymphatic system is a network of slow moving vessels in the body that carries cellular waste toward the heart, to be filtered and removed. Lymph also carries lymphocytes, and other immune system agents. Manual lymphatic drainage claims to improve waste removal and immune function.

It is  a type of gentle massage which intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph. Specific movements of the skin stimulate the contraction of the lymphatic vessels so a greater amount of metabolism waste products, excess fluid and valuable substances are removed from the tissue and returned to the lymphatic system for eventual redistribution or elimination.

Conditions for which MLD therapy is helpful:

Post traumatic oedema, dislocation of the shoulder, torn muscle fibres, sprains, strains.

Pre and post operative oedema: rhinoplasty, eyelids surgery, ear correction , face lift, liposuction, liposculpture,     tummy tuck, abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, breast lift.

Myofascial Release

Is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.


Trigger Points Therapy

Trigger points also known as, trigger sites, or muscle knots, are hyperirritable spots in the fascia surrounding skeletal muscle.

Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.

The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment.
