MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE FACE
Same as the body Manual Lymphatic Drainage but performed on the face, neck and shoulders.
Manual Lymphatic Massage (MLD) was pioneered by Drs Emil and Estrid Vodder.
While the circulatory system relies on the heart to pump blood through our system, the lymph system depends on the movement of the skeletal muscles to help with the lymph flow through the vessels, to the lymph nodes, lymph ducts and its return to the cardiovascular system.
The lymphatic system plays an important role to keep our immune system healthy to fight infection.
Manual Lymph Drainage Massage uses specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
This face and neck Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage will help de-stress the skin allowing it to rest and repair and is good for problematic or puffy skin.
