MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of hands on therapy which encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
Reflexology is a hands on approach to health that utilizes applied pressure to reflex zones on your feet, hands or outer ears to affect your entire body and promote health and vitality.
