What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage ?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) was developed by the Danish physiotherapist Dr Emil Vodder in France in the 1930s. He discovered that a malfunction of the lymph nodes resulted in a blockage in parts of the system. This blockage could be removed or dissolved by using appropriate massage techniques. The lymph system is the body's "garbage disposal system" as it clears away toxins, bacteria, dead cells and excess water and proteins. Without a properly working lymph system, a person could eventually die from "poisoning". So he developed the Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage system that could imitate the pump of the Lymphatic system.
So Manual Lymphatic Drainage is essentially a "retraining" of the lymph to make it flow faster and more efficiently. This massage involves gentle rhythmical movements using the hands on the lymph nodes which aids the body in collecting, moving and ejecting lymphatic fluid. It also boosts the supply of white blood cells, imperative for a healthy immune system. Manual Lymphatic Drainage treatment is still relatively unknown but is suitable for both adults and children.
How does Manual Lymphatic Drainage Work ?
The Manual Lymphatic Drainage technique includes various circular finger pressure motions covering small sections of the skin, as well as circular hand motions covering larger areas of the skin. All circular pressure motions move the elastic tissue without stimulating increased blood flow or damaging the tissue. There are essentially four basic movements during a Manual Lymphatic Drainage session; a stationary, circular movement, a pumping action, a rotation technique and a scooping movement.
Once stimulated, the tissues are then stroked in the direction the lymph would be flowing towards sites of normal lymphatic drainage. Unlike the blood, the lymphatic system has no pumps and valves to push it around the body and its organs, instead, it must rely on movement.
Usually a series of treatments are needed, maybe up to a week with each session lasting from 45 minutes to 1hour each. Manual Lymphatic Drainage therapists must learn how to detect irregularities in the skin's texture, and make proper judgments about the need and course of treatment.
