Revive Wellness - MLD

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD)

Last week i finally tried Revive Wellness's Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage – which they have won tons of awards for!

It is totally different from the massages i've done elsewhere as MLD Massage uses a different technique and it has different benefits – in fact, much more benefits compared to a Deep Tissue Massage which focuses mainly on relaxing your muscles. I do Deep Tissue Massages every 3-4 weeks to relax my body so i'm quite used to hard and painful massages however, when the therapist laid her hands on me, i was quite shocked that not much pressure was used. At the beginning of the session i thought she didn't dare apply pressure so i told her that i'm very used to getting massages and then she explained to me that MLD is totally different.

MLD is recommended for those who have had...

Surgery (eg. Liposuction)
Just Given Bitrth
Suffering from Skin Conditions like Eczema
Muscle Cramps and Aches
Inability to Lose Weight
Water Retention
Stress and Anxiety

MLD can help improve the condition of your skin, relief stress and it works as a Full Body Detox.

This Zero Pressure massage improves the efficiency of the Lymphatic System. It is said to be an alternative therapy to holistic health treatments. The usual Swedish, or Deep Tissue Massage has no effect on lymph drainage. The lymph system works just below the skin and deep tissue massages get deep into the muscle tissue, too deep and forceful to enhance lymph drainage. Therefore, a MLD massage is more of a specific medical, wellness type of massage for a specific purpse.

If you aren't feeling good and your immune system is low, speeding up a sluggish lymphatic system could help! MLD can improve a sluggish system by 8 to 10 times, removing toxins at a more rapid rate. Studies have also shown that MLD decreases cellulite in the boyd improving and restoring healthy skin! Depressed immunity and poor circulation in lymph can also have an effect on the appearance of your skin. As beauty is "skin deep", it is also lymphatic deep. Poor lymphatic drainage is a cause of skin problems such as swelling, redness, puffiness, pimples, and dark bags under the eyes. MLD cleanses the lymph fluid, flushing the lymphatic system allowing swelling in the mucus membranes to be reduced and many problems in the skin to be cleared up. Skin cells wear out and are constantly being replaced by young cells rich with nutrients that leave the blood and pass through the lymph systems.

It is not a one time treatment. Repeated applications in a short period of time are more effective. Then a break can be taken after maybe 3-4 sessions, restarting another series of MLD treatments later on.

Now, you've learnt a thing or two about MLD, do give Revive Wellness's award winning MLD Massage a try some day! :)
