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.
