This is a unique, very light technique, that moves the skin over the underlying tissues. Subsequently the musculature of the lymph vessels are stretched and stimulated. The lymphatic system “Purifies the body and regulates irritations, swelling and oedema.”
What is the Lymphatic System? It is the second circulatory system made up of lymph vessels and groups of lymph nodes. Unlike the blood circulatory system this one has no pump. It relies solely on muscular and skeletal movement which means it can become sluggish.
What are lymph nodes? They filter the lymph fluid of any bacteria or other unwanted substances before eliminating them through the liver and kidneys. White blood cells (lymphocytes) are also formed within the lymph nodes which are responsible for fighting infection and building the body’s immunity.
MLD helps the lymphatic system work more efficiently naturally detoxifying cells and organs of the body. This in turn strengthens the immune system. A very good preventative treatment.
