Manual Lymphatic Drainage Treatment

One of the major roles of the lymphatic system is to drain excess fluid from around tissues and organs and return it to the blood maintaining the bodies fluid balance; when this function goes out of balance then oedema (swelling) results. The lymphatic system is also a vital component of the immune system. Manual Lymphatic Drainage has a powerful cleansing, relaxing, pain relieving and supportive effect on the recipients body.

The Western diet of not enough clean fluid intake coupled with highly processed foods can introduce excess waste into the lymphatic system creating a sluggish system.

  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage enhances the activity of the immune system

  • Helps reduce pain in joints and muscles, increasing mobility

  • Help improve detox programs

  • Promotes deep relaxation

  • Increases cellular oxygenation and nourishment

What Happens During A Session?

During the session you will be covered in a large warm towel/blanket and made comfortable on the heated treatment couch. From here the treatment will be undertaken; with Manual Lymphatic Drainage there are a combination of very light skin touch strokes to promote the superficial lymphatic vessels in the skin called ‘initial lymph vessels’ and also deeper strokes combined with joint mobilisations to stimulate the deeper lymph vessels of the body. A Manual Lymphatic Drainage treatment is amazingly relaxing as well as being highly effective in, for example, the healing of tissue after surgery, clearing of sinus congestion, easing arthritic pain associated with inflammation etc. There are minimal contra indications for this treatment therefore available to almost everyone.

Treatment For Mechanical Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence occurs when the muscles in the bladder that control the flow of urine contract or relax involuntarily.

This results in either leaking or uncontrolled urination.

The condition affects nearly 1 in 10 people aged over 65.

Urinary incontinence can range from mild, occasional leaking to chronic uncontrolled urination.

Incontinence itself is not a disease.

Causes Of Urinary Incontinence…

Incontinence may be a temporary problem caused by a vaginal or urinary tract infection (UTI), constipation, certain medications, or it can be a chronic condition.

The most common causes of chronic incontinence include:

  • Overactive bladder muscles

  • Weakened pelvic floor muscles

  • For some men, an enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

  • Nerve damage that affects bladded control

  • Interstitial cystitis (chronic bladder inflammation) or other bladder conditions

  • Side effects from a prior surgery

If you have stress incontinence and overactive bladder (also called urge incontinence) this treatment may help you. It entails a small mechanical adjustment to the bladder.
