Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy
MLD is a non-invasive gentle and relaxing massage specific to the lymphatic pathways. It promotes the reabsorption of lymph (protein rich fluid) back to the circulatory system. Thereby, it enhances/activates the immune system to fight infections. Yet it removes metabolic waste and certain heavy metals that are harmful for us (detoxification).
