Manual Lymphatic Drainage
THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM
The lymphatic system is the bodies drainage system and its functions include removing waste , damaged cells, viruses and bacteria from the body. It also activates white blood cells to fight infection and boosts your immune system.
A fully functioning lymphatic system is vital for optimum health and wellness. If it isn’t working properly, these functions are compromised. This may lead to swelling and other serious health conditions.
MLD (manual lymphatic drainage)
MLD is a very light skin treatment working on the superficial lymphatic vessels which lie just under the skin. It has a decongestive effect giving increased and quicker removal of waste products and toxins. The slow repetitive movements dampen down the nervous system, relaxing and calming the body. Pain levels are reduced.
MLD can help treat
- Fluid retention: (swollen ankles, puffy eyes etc.)
- Sinusitis, migraine
- Digestive conditions such as IBS/constipation
- ME (chronic fatigue syndrome)
- Lymphatic detoxification
- Swelling from a sports injury or trauma
- Post-surgery swelling/scar treatment

Some of our Success Stories
I have suffered with post operative Lymphodoema in my left leg for over 20 years which impacts me both physically and emotionally. Without doubt, MLD has a significant impact on the localised swelling and greatly reduces my discomfort – I would recommend it to anyone who suffers from this distressing condition and in particular, would highly recommend the treatment and counselling offered by Jackie.
In my experience, surgeons often seem to simply regard Lymphodoema as a likely and unavoidable outcome of radical surgery and don’t recognise the results that can be achieved through MLD and self-management. Hopefully, this attitude will change as more professionals like Jackie demonstrate the very real value and positive results which can be achieved by the treatments they offer.
Jackie was both knowledgeable and empathetic about my condition and showed a genuine concern and desire to help me. I felt very safe in her hands and her technique is the best I have experienced over many years of having MLD treatment. She has developed a treatment program particular to my lymphatic problems and after each session, I experience an immediate relief of the skin tightening around the area of swelling, which then continues to improve over subsequent days.Bev
