Manual Lymphatic Drainage

The purpose of MLD is to stimulate the lymphatic system. Therefore the techniques used involve light pressure. This is imperative because the actual size of lymph vessels targeted during the treatment are minute. The diameter is less than a millimetre. In other areas these channels are even smaller. As with a river bed, the smaller the diameter (or width of a river) the greater the resistance for fluid or river flow. Therefore Heidi will ensure that techniques are slow and gentle, this way it prevents the vessels from being put under too much pressure and strain.  Read More >
