A little on the Lymphatic System & MLD
The Lymphatic System is part of the circulatory system and immune system. The lymphatic system is made up of organs and lymph vessels that carry a clear fluid, called lymph. Lymph moves through the body, gathering metabolic waste and foreign invaders as it transports white blood cells to and from lymph nodes. The lymph nodes will then clean the lymph fluid and dispose of the toxins. In this way, the lymphatic system cleanses every cell in the body. The spleen, thymus, tonsils, and adenoids are also part of the lymphatic system, and support the functions of the immune system. Immune cells, which fight infection in the body, are also created in the lymph nodes.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage, or MLD, is a very relaxing, gentle technique used to promote lymphatic drainage. The lymphatic system sits right beneath the skin. By using light pressure and rhythmic pumping, the lymph fluid is prompted to move, creating an increased lymph flow. All hand motions follow the natural movement of lymph and are directed towards the lymphatic drainage areas, including the neck, armpits, and groin. MLD will increase lymph vessel activity and move interstitial fluid, resulting in a properly functioning lymphatic system.
Results from Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy vary between clients, and optimal results greatly depends on the issue and on how often MLD therapy is received. Protocols will vary, results will be much more positive when MLD is performed frequently surrounding injury, illness or surgeries. For those with long term illnesses, or those suffering from previous injuries or surgeries, protocols will be determined and then modified as symptoms ease and a difference is noticed.
For optimal results, you must receive MLD on a consistent basis. Ideally, a client should receive one session per day for 3-6 days in a row, after this time, perhaps weekly visits, and eventually maintenance visits every few weeks or months. Many clients opt for 3 visits per week to start. MLD is designed for long-term results; therefore, it is imperative that a client be seen based on the above guidelines. One treatment alone is not going to bring about adequate results, as an initial session will only hold the body at an optimal spot for 24 hours. In order to sustain beneficial results, more maintenance needs to occur.
