Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a very gentle manual technique which helps restore the body's balance by effectively clearing toxins from the body, as well as helping to reduce fluid retention from a variety of causes ranging from PMT, oedema, lymphoedema, sinusitis, pre and post-surgery or injury. It is particularly effective in reducing lymphoedema post-cancer. 

Regular treatment can help to boost the immune system. MLD is tolerated well by patients who may find other forms of massage too painful. It is a slow, rhythmical treatment which makes it relaxing and therapeutic at the same time

Benefits of MLD:

* Reduction in the size of limbs affected by lymphoedema
* Stimulation of the immune system
* Reduction in symptoms of sinusitis
* Reduction in fluid retention
* Assists in regulating hormonal imbalances in women
* Reduction in swelling and bruising post-surgery
* Reduction in pain
MLD is given to a partially undressed client and careful draping is always applied. Powder may be used during the treatment.

CranioSacral therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on treatment that releases long-held tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissue that surrounds the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

What conditions does CranioSacral Therapy address?

* Migraines and Headaches
* Chronic Neck and Back Pain
* Stress and Tension-Related Disorders
* Motor-Coordination Impairments
* Infant and Childhood Disorders
* Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries

* Fibromyalgia
* TMJ Syndrome
* Scoliosis
* Central Nervous System Disorders
* Learning Disabilities
* Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
* Orthopedic Problems
* And Many Other Conditions

CST is administered to a fully clothed client.

The technique is a complementary therapy and works in conjunction with all therapies, or can be applied on its own.
