Manual Lymphatic Drainage Melbourne

The lymphatic system is our body’s defence in fighting infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic waste, excess fluid, toxins and bacteria out of the body. We each carry this decongestion through different parts of the body and in different volumes.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a very specific, relaxing massage technique using mild mechanical stretching of the connective tissue. This massage motion facilitates decongestion of lymph ducts encouraging the natural circulation of the lymph through the body. Manual Lymphatic Drainage in Melbourne also stimulates the lymphatic system to absorb and transport lymph more effectively to functioning lymph nodes where it is cleaned of toxins and other debris as well as carrying vital substances to areas where it is needed. This helps to ensure our body’s ability to rejuvenate and establish a resistance to all types of stress placed on it, thus hastening healing times.

As necessary, our qualified clinicians at Liberty Belle Skin Centre are able to offer Manual Lymphatic Drainage in Melbourne to Dr Moss’ surgical clients to optimise and speed up recovery and reduce post-surgical swelling and inflammation.
