What does this involve?

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle method of skin massage. The specialist MLD practitioner at Bella Vou use light skin massage and rhythmic pumping techniques to gently move the skin in the direction of lymphatic flow.

The massage stimulates the drainage of lymph and boosts the removal of waste products from the area. The lymphatics are the body’s waste disposal system, collecting any toxins that we need to get rid of. As a result, MLD offers many benefits including speeding up healing following cosmetic surgery, reducing pain, swelling and bruising and maintaining your body's normal healthy function.
