Manual Lymphatic Drainage
MLD is a specific technique with gentle, skin-stretching movements. These movements transport the lymphatic fluid from your swollen areas in the direction of the lymph flow and in areas that are draining well.MLD starts in the areas of the non-swollen parts of your body to open the well-working lymph collectors, make the lymph flow faster, and induce a suction effect. Your therapist will continue with MLD in your swollen body parts to direct the fluid to the open lymph collectors. The gentle, rhythmic motions on your skin can also help to soften any hardened (fibrotic) tissue. Deep breathing enhances the positive effects of MLD. So-called ‘diaphragmatic breathing’ helps to open deep-seated lymph collectors. Therefore, MLD usually starts and ends with deep breathing exercises. By the way, laughing is a deep breathing technique as well! Besides its effect on the lymphatic flow, it can also relieve stress, anxiety, or even depression.
