The lymphatic system consists of tissues, vessels, and organs that work together to transport a colourless, watery substance called lymph back into the circulatory system or known as the bloodstream.
It’s important to note, fluid that drains from cells and tissues (and that is not reabsorbed into the capillaries) becomes lymphatic fluid, along with proteins, minerals, fats, nutrients, damaged cells, cancer cells and foreign invaders (bacteria). Hence health conditions such as Lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and other health conditions can be managed by Manual lymph drainage (MLD) as it stimulates healthy blood circulation. MLD, is a smooth, light, skin-stretching massage that helps promote the movement of lymphatic fluid out of swollen limbs. It focuses on the lymph vessels to promote the flow of healthy lymphatic fluid.
