Massage & Drainage

London manual lymphatic drainage against oedema and celullite

cuisseManual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a gentle massage, which mainly focuses on lymphatic nodes and vessels in order to promoting the natural flow of the lymphatic fluid. The lymphatic system is responsible for taking the toxins away from healthy cells and carrying germs-fighting materials to cells when they are under attack by viruses, protecting our body (immune function).

Since it doesn’t have its own pumping mechanism, MLD and muscular contractions can account for helping the fluid move throughout the body (here also the importance of exercises).

Manual lymphatic drainage is useful when working with patients who have sports injuries or who have post surgery oedema. After the initial inflammatory stage has passed, lymphatic work can be applied to clear the debris of tissues. Continual use of lymphatic drainage while the patient is healing can help to enhance the tissue regeneration process by keeping the tissues as healthy as possible.

It also helps scars to heal by enhancing circulation and immunity. As the flow around the scar is increased, lymphatic vessels that have been damaged are stimulated to heal; toxins are drawn away, improving the health of the tissues.

Manual lymphatic drainage is also beneficial on an aesthetic point of view as it treats and reduces cellulite. In cellulite prone areas, a lack of circulation occurs, decreasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients flowing to the fibrous tissues, which hold fat cells together underneath skin layers.

Consequently the fibrous tissues harden and thicken, causing the typical orange peel aspect. MLD helps restore a good circulation in these areas, which, along with massage manipulations, reduces all the pits and bulges of the cellulite.

Many pregnant and non-pregnant women suffer from bad legs circulation, their feet and legs are swollen and can be painful with a heavy leg sensation. The manual lymph drainage is a very efficient tool to reduce the oedema and the heavy legs sensation.

London comfort massage – Swedish , soft tissue or deep tissue massage

swedish_massageEvery day, one deals with different levels of stress, causing muscle tension and pain for various reasons. Comfort massages are an excellent way to relieve the pain and improve the body’s health.
A comfort and relaxing massage refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying a light to moderate pressure and by rubbing in the same direction as the blood flow returning to the heart. A major effect from this kind of massage is the increase of oxygen in the blood flow, therefore eliminating the toxins released by muscle during the massage itself. It also stimulates the skin, hence the nervous system, reducing emotional and physical stress, helping you to fully relaxed.

For the best result, our physiotherapist will come to see you in the comfort of your home, at work, or in your hotel room to provide you with a relaxing massage, insisting on the muscles which will help you to take out the stress of your day, the pain in your muscles and leave you in a very comfortable and relaxed state.

As we offer tailored treatment you will be able to choose the intensity of your massage whether you like it soft or deep.

London Sport Massage

sportmassage

A sport massage is specifically tailored to sport injuries and is not a relaxing massage.
Not only beneficial to professional sportive, it also benefits anyone who exercises, even low impact exercise such as regular walking. Therefore, no matter which sport one practices, the main aim of a sport massage is to help to increase the level of fitness.
