Complementary therapy is often described as treatment which works effectively in conjunction with another treatment, this can be another complementary therapy or conventional medicine. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a complementary therapy and may be useful for relieving conditions such as sinus congestion. Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a subtle form of massage that works holistically to stimulate the lymph system, removing toxins, excess water and waste products from the body. If you would like further information we have practitioners available in Epping, Nottingham and North London.
The gentle massage which MLD provides is intended by proponents to encourage the natural circulation of the lymph through the body. The lymph system depends on peristalsis and the movement of skeletal muscles to squeeze fluid through lymph ducts and vessels. MLD advocates careful hand movements to cause lymph movement hence it may be a suitable treatment for those requiring relief from sinus congestion. Practitioners experienced in MLD who can provide more information on the treatment can be contacted in Healer North London, Godalming and Newry.
MLD increases the blood flow to the lymph and veins, without increasing the flow to the arteries. MLD relaxes the body, mind and spirit, it cleanses and tones by draining away toxins and reduces bags and dark circles from under the eyes which may be caused by sinus congestion. If you think this complementary therapy would be a good choice for you we have practitioners who can tell you more available in Southampton, Ulcerative Colitis London and Covent Garden.
MLD massage is applied in gentle strokes towards the heart. This technique will lightly stretch the walls of the lymph vessels and encourage lymph drainage. One of four very effective MLD techniques to encourage lymph drainage are stationary circles, these strokes are applied in continuous spirals. The pump technique makes oval strokes to encourage lymph flow. The rotary technique massages the skin in circular motions and scoop strokes apply twisting strokes to the clients skin to encourage waste disposal. Practitioners who have experience of MLD and the massage techniques involved are based in W4, Nutritional Truro and North London.
Anyone who has suffered with sinus congestion will know just how unbearable an ailment it can prove to be. Manual Lymphatic Drainage may be a useful choice in treating the symptoms. Different complementary therapy practitioners may advocate slightly different treatments being mindful of your symptoms and dependant upon their assessment of the severity of your condition.
