Release, Relax, Unwind With our Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Massage Treatment
I first became interested in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) after having treatment myself. I have lymphoedema and know personally the benefits of this type of massage. I am aware of the emotional as well as physical effects it has on a person.
I qualified in the Vodder school of Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage in 2006 in decongestive lymphatic therapy I am also a registered DLT member of MLD UK, www.mlduk.org.uk which means I can treat patients with a compromised lymph system, for example after the removal of lymph nodes, (lymphadenectomy)
I am able to offer client centred treatments in the South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire area, within the comfort of your own home, or within my treatment rooms based in Thorpe Salvin which is located on the border of the three Counties.
I am non-judgemental and treat all clients with respect and compassion.
So whether it’s a relaxing Swedish body massage or manual lymphatic drainage massage I look forward to hearing from you.

The treatment is not only used for both primary and secondary lymphoedema. It may strengthen the immune system as part of detox treatment, cleansing the body from within. Compression bandaging can be used to reduce limb volume, to give better shape to the limb and improve skin condition. Compression garments are then used to maintain the limb size.
The treatment can be used after injury and cosmetic/non-cosmetic surgery to enhance results by reducing swelling, bruising and speeding recovery time.
MLD may also be beneficial for clients with Lipoedema. Lipoedema is a chronic disorder with symmetrical impairment of fat distribution. Fat deposits to the hips and thighs accumulate making them out of proportion with the upper body, although in rare cases the arms may involved.
As well as having a decongestive effect, the gentle and rhythmical movements are shown to calm the nervous system and help inhibit pain.
The massage uses gentle rhythmical movements to stimulate the lymphatic system to work more efficiently, create collateral routes of drainage and removal of waste product.
The primary goal of Swedish body massage is to relax the body and mind. The massage is beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
