MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
MLD is not a Massage!! MLD is a gentle touch. MLD treats the accumulation of protein-rich fluid in the superficial tissues. It has important pathological and clinical consequences for the patient if left untreated. In such cases the swelling may appear after simple accidents such as sports injuries, which can suddenly overload the lymphatic system.
Long term untreated it can develop Lymphedema. Lymphadema is often caused by trauma to the lymphatic system, such as surgery, injury, scarring, infection and radiation therapy. Post-mastectomy lymphedema of the upper extremity caused by breast cancer treatment is very common in the United States.
Post-Op MLD treatment
Swelling is natural after surgery. Manual Lymphatic Drainage post surgery is a particular technique useful for reducing swelling. By stimulating the lymphatic system it increases the rate at which the body removes waste, dead cell particles, and inflammatory agents from the tissue
CranioSacral Therapy CST
Is a light touch-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction, and improve whole-body health and performance. Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the craniosacral system , the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord. You endure stresses and strains, and your body absorbs them. but your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten, and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. Craniosacral therapy releases those tensions to allow the body to relax and self-correct. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best.
Cupping is a modern adaptation of the ancient art of cupping therapy. While massage performed by applying pressure, cupping instead uses negative pressure to pull, lift, open and expand the body’s soft tissues.
