Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

This treatment is mainly used for people who have either oedema or lymphedema. However, it can also be used for things such as detox, sluggishness, brain fog, recovery after colds and flu, post pregnancy swelling, skin tone and cellulite management.

It uses extremely light strokes and pumping movements to convey the fluid to the points of filtration and drainage, otherwise known as lymph nodes.

The lightness of the treatment is due to the lymphatic system sitting only 1mm under the skin.

I do two different types of MLD:

Classic MLD: which is used for the things mentioned above, such as fatigue, detox, brain fog, mild cases of swelling from pregnancy, travel or post colds and flu.

Post – Op MLD: which is used for people who have had surgery, and are struggling with oedema and bruising.


MLD is very much an accumulative treatment, and it is imperative that you understand that a minimum of 3 treatments are needed before you’ll see changes.

For clients who have had surgery, a minimum of 6 treatments are needed.

Please kindly note that I am not a Lymphedema specialist. I can gladly assist you with MLD for lymphedema, but you have to also be under the care of a lymphedema specialist who can assist you with lymphedema care. Lymphedema specialists can be sought through the NHS or privately.
