Manual Lymphatic Drainage for Acne, Rosacea, and Eczema
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) was developed back in the 1930’s
by a Danish doctor, Dr. Emil Vodder. MLD was first used to treat
sinusitis and other immune disorders.
The Lymphatic System is a part of the circulatory System and a vital part of the immune system. One of the Main functions of the Lymph System is to provide a defense in the immune system by carrying the white blood cells through your body. It also Helps balance fluid and distribute immune cells throughout the body to maintain health and defend against disease, rids tissues of excess proteins and toxins.
The Main purpose is to protect the body against harmful microorganisms, poisons, and dead or dying cells.
What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
MLD is a light, relaxing, rhythmic massage using ½ to 8 ounces of pressure going in the direction of your lymphatic system. MLD boosts the lymphatic system, giving it a kick start.
Why lymphatic massage for acne, Rosacea, and Eczema?
