Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM)

Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM)

Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) also known as Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is different to remedial massage.

Massage is kneading, rolling and stretching the skin, often working deep into the muscle tissue.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage requires gentle, slow moving of hands over the skin working with the flow of the lymphatic system.

What is the Lymphatic System?

Our lymphatic system is a combination of organs, vessels and nodes, acting as our ‘sewage system’. It ensures any excess fluid in our interstitial tissue is ‘mopped’ up and drained into the circulatory system to prevent swelling and also fight infections.   Unlike the circulatory system which has the heart for a pump, the lymphatic system relies on muscle contraction to circulate the lymph fluid.  It is therefore a sluggish system, and if you have a sedentary lifestyle it is important to get your lymph moving to ensure optimal health.

Conditions Lymphatic Drainage Massage is beneficial for:

  • Lymphoedema
  • Pre and Post surgery
  • Post cancer treatment
  • Post strenuous sporting events/training
  • Post flu
  • Itchy skin
  • Acne

Ensuring your lymphatic system is not clogged, regular Lymphatic Drainage Massage can help your body to rid itself of toxins and any infections that may enter your body.  The lymphatic system is a truly amazing system and when looked after you will:

  • Have more energy
  • Less colds/flu
  • Recover from surgery quicker
  • Reduce swelling – from sport injuries or illness
  • Promote better healing of scars
  • Clearer skin

What to expect

Before any manual therapy can begin, an intake form will be taken and discussed with you to assess what you are expecting from the treatment and what treatment plan will be implemented. The initial consultation will include showing you how to open up your lymphatic system which should then be done daily at home.  All lymphatic drainage massage begins from the heart and working proximal to distal moving lymph towards the heart.  Treatment is not painful, as slow, light stokes are used over the skin. Post treatment, it is important to drink plenty of water. It is important to be aware some people can feel unwell that evening or following day as the lymph moves through the body.  It is advised if possible, to have a quiet day post your treatment.

What is Lymphoedema?

Lymphoedema is swelling in the body, due to the lymphatic vessels not being able to ‘mop’ up excess fluid in the body.  Unfortunately Lymphoedema will not heal itself, treatment is needed to control and then manage the swelling.  Lymphoedema is generally in a limb, but can occur anywhere in the body.
