MLD is a gentle technique that aims to stimulate the lymphatic system, removing congestion and stagnation from within the body.  Subtle manual moves activate lymph and interstitial fluid circulation, as well as stimulates the functioning of the immune system and parasympathetic nervous system.  Helps reduce oedema, also helps regenerate tissue.  This massage uses very light pressure.
