Manual lymphatic drainage
Manual lymph drainage (MLD) is a very special type of massage designed to stimulate the lymphatic system. The hand movements and sequences are adapted for each person. Each session will last approximately one hour.
The session follows a particular sequence, using a series of massage techniques, including stretching, compressing, gliding, and cupping motions.This stimulates the lymphatic vessels which carry substances vital to the defense of the body and removes waste products. The method makes the lymph fluid move easily through the nodes and tissues, making sure the fluid doesn't get trapped anywhere.
Depending on the condition, treatment can be whole body or localised to the area needed. If you are suffering from tired feet or water retention, manual lymphatic massage drainage during pregnancy can be helpful.
How does pregnancy affect the lymphatic system?
The lymphatic system works as a functional reservoir for the venous system, and oedema occurs when the reserving capacity is exceeded. During pregnancy, the changes experienced by pregnant women favour the formation of oedema. Therefore, the swelling is not due to lymphedema but due to system overload.
Studies show that 9 of 12 (75%) had the onset of lymphedema or developed worse lymphedema during their pregnancy. Most of these women found that the lymphedema got worse in the final months of their pregnancy. 2 women reported having persistent lymphedema after delivery.
