Benefits of Detox Massage: Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a form of massage that stimulates the lymphatic system with gentle massaging strokes. The light rhythmical massage encourages the lymphatic system to eliminate metabolic waste products, excess fluid, and bacteria.

The effects of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) are numerous, and include general benefits to the nervous and muscular system. MLD is a great addition to other detox measures as it encourages fluid flow in the connective tissues.

The lymphatic system is composed of lymph vessels, lymph nodes, and organs. Part of the body's defense system, the lymph nodes remove microorganisms and other foreign substances. They act as a filtration system that keeps particulate matter, such as bacteria, from entering the bloodstream.

Stimulating the lymphatic system through manual lymphatic drainage will activate all of the above functions, as well as encourage fluid circulation and cell regeneration. Both actions promote detoxification, facilitate healing, and support the immune system.

When not working efficiently, the lymphatic system reduces the ability for the brain and other organs to do their work. Toxins that normally filtered out and destroyed by the lymph system are offloaded onto other organs, essentially overloading them. Stagnant lymph fluid may contain old deposits of dead bacteria, metabolic toxins, and dead cells.
