The lymphatic system is the body’s ‘waste disposal unit’.  A vital body system essential for good health by way of maintaining the body’s fluid balance, blood circulation and immune system functioning.  It is a network of nodes and vessels which are a part of the circulatory system and the immune system.

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a specialised form of  physical treatment that requires very light and very precise hand movements and pressures which have to be performed in a specific sequence.  As the lymphatic system is a slow moving system, so too the hand movements are required to be slow and rhythmic.

Total treatment time for the MLD sequence is 90mins.
