MLD FOR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

Manual Lymph Drainage, the most researched massage method in the world, is a gentle, slow, rhythmic technique. Because of its calming measured movements, MLD can help to lower blood pressure and heart rate by suppressing the Sympathetic Nervous System. The Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) is part of the Central Nervous System (the brain and spinal column). The SNS is dominant in “fight or flight” scenarios, when we feel we have to stand our ground, or turn and leave the situation immediately. Today, the Sympathetic Nervous System dominates in stressful situations such as confrontations, driving in traffic, hurrying to a meeting. The SNS raises blood pressure and heart rate, dilates the pupils, increases blood flow to the lungs and muscles, causes sweating, and slows digestion. This is all in an effort to get the body ready for the anticipated stress. Constant stimulation of this part of the nervous system is not healthy for our bodies.

The repeated rhythm of MLD dampens the effects of the Sympathetic Nervous System thereby promoting relaxation and a feeling of well-being. When this occurs, the Parasympathetic Nervous System that facilitates rest and healing can dominate. In addition, MLD can help to alleviate pain and aches in the limbs by stimulating mechanoreceptors that interrupt pain signals to the brain. It can also promote a sense of calmness and relaxation by encouraging suppression of the Sympathetic Nervous System — the “fight or flight” part of the Central Nervous System (brain and spinal cord).

Often, patients who are receiving manual lymph drainage become so relaxed that they doze off during treatment.
