Want to get the most out of your detox? Then putting in good preparation is key. Cleaning up your diet is an obvious one, but there are other therapies that can help ‘prime’ your body for the detox process. Take for example Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) a gentle rhythmic massage designed to stimulate the lymphatic vessels and encourage the flow of lymph fluids, and has the beneficial effect of removing toxins and excess water from the body’s tissues.We spoke to Nina Thorstensson from KX Spas to find out more about how MLD can improve the detox process.
How is MLD carried out? “It’s a ‘light touch’ manual treatment which normally covers the whole body during one hour”
How can MLD help the detox process? “The MLD treatment is very beneficial during the detox process because it increases the body’s removal of waste products, toxins and excess fluids. It also has a relaxing effect on the nervous system and therefore promotes digestion, and improves constipation. It also helps to reduce general inflammation and improves ones immune system as it helps to distribute the lymphocytes (defence cells)”
When is the best time to come in for a treatment? “Clients should come for MLD during and after the detox process but it would also be beneficial to start with some treatments before as this will most likely make you feel better if your system is ‘up&running’ more efficiently before you start the detox.
