Balance can have a great many meanings. It can be balancing a check book, balancing your tires, work-life balance, nutritional balance .Sometimes we need to look at how our body is balanced. Our blood, organs and tissues all have a certain amount of fluids, oxygen, blood, etc. that they require to keep them working properly. When there is too much or too little of those substances, systems can become burdened.

For those of us who find our systems lacking in balance by feeling too much pressures from inside your body or a feeling of constant inflammation or bloating, Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a wellness therapy to consider. MLD is a technique that aims to support body’s fluid balance by utilizing a gentle yet stimulating hand technique to assist your lymphatic system in removing fluids that build up in our bodies and causes inflammation. It is a great tool for wellness as it relaxes your nervous system and leaves you feeling cleansed. While commonly known as a Lymphatic Massage, this skilled technique does not utilize kneading or rolling of muscles. It is a gentle movement of skin to stimulate the delicate vessels of the lymphatic system.
