Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

MLD uses gentle rhythmic pumping movements to improve the efficiency of the lymphatic system. By helping to stimulate the flow of lymph, MLD can reduce swelling, ease pain and strengthen the immune system. MLD has a powerful and soothing effect on the autonomous nervous system resulting in a wonderfully effective and deeply relaxing treatment.

I have done a number of classes at KnotStressed including pregnancy yoga, mum and baby yoga and postnatal yoga. They have all been fabulous and something to look forward too in the week. Lovely small groups and warm friendly setting with time to relax and enjoy a cuppa to unwind from daily stress. I’ve also had a couple of massages here and they have always been wonderfully relaxing and healing.
