The recovery room is the best! I had another wonderful appointment with Vikki where she guided me through a diagnosis, treatment and then some homework for my rehab. This lady knows her stuff, is so welcoming and friendly every time I see her. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

I've been to The Recovery Room a couple of times for sports massage before and it has always been great.This time I went to see Georgia 2 months after a bike accident to help ease the tightness and stiffness in my legs and knee which took some impact from the fall.We spent some time discussing what happened, the injury I sustained plus what was currently happening and Georgia worked wonders and even sent me away with some homework!!I'll be back for another sports massage after my next physio appointment for sure ☺️

I booked in with Georgia for the first time as I had pain in my back and neck. She was brilliant throughout the whole treatment, from identifying the issues I was having to applying the right pressure and advising on some exercises to try at home. She knew exactly how ease the pain and I felt so much better afterwards. I would highly recommend

The Science of MLD

The lymphatic system plays a crucial role in maintaining the body's balance and overall health. It is responsible for transporting lymph, a clear fluid that contains white blood cells and waste products, throughout the body. However, unlike the cardiovascular system with its pump (the heart), the lymphatic system relies on external stimuli, such as muscle contractions and manual manipulation, to circulate lymph effectively.

What MLD Can Help With

  • Edema and Swelling Reduction: MLD is especially effective in reducing swelling, making it an excellent choice for individuals dealing with conditions like lymphedema or post-surgical edema.
  • Detoxification: By promoting the removal of toxins and waste products, MLD can aid in detoxification and support your body's natural cleansing processes.
  • Enhanced Immune Function: MLD stimulates lymph flow, which in turn supports your immune system by aiding in the removal of harmful substances and promoting the circulation of immune cells.

During your MLD session at our clinic, you can expect a comfortable and tranquil environment. Our certified MLD therapists will use their expert knowledge to provide a tailored treatment that meets your specific needs.
