Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) may be able to help with the symptoms of Lymphoedema or Lipoedema by:
- improving circulation and swelling
- reducing the heaviness of the limb
- improving mobility
Lymphoedema can occur as a result of a disruption to the lymph system causing swelling, bloating, inflammation and toxin to build.
Lipoedema is an accumulation of fat cells in the tissue normally from the hips to the ankles, but can also appear in the upper arms. There is usually a family history of this.
