Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD)

Our Remedial Massage Therapist Sana Kurban was fortunate enough recently to be invited to attend an advanced course to upgrade her skills in Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD).

MLD is a highly specialised massage technique designed to activate and cleanse the lymphatic system. It is a slow, rhythmic and precise treatment performed with light touch and in specific directions, which mimic the natural lymphatic flow.

The main functions of the Lymphatic system include:

  • producing immunity and assisting the body to fight disease and infection
  • removal of waste and toxins
  • regulating fluid volume and pressure in the tissues

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is key to maximising our ability to rejuvenate and establish resistance to stress, disease and infection, all of which negatively impact lymphatic flow.

MLD is very effective in the reduction of post surgical scaring and lymphedema, including following mastectomy, lymphadenectomy and lymph biopsy.

If you’d like to find out more about MLD or other massage techniques Sana utilises please don’t hesitate to call the clinic on 9650 2220.
