Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
The aim of MLD is to stimulate the movement of lymph inside the lymphatic vessels and increase the uptake from the swollen tissues. Techniques vary according to tissue texture, structures and the individual's scenario.
Exercise creates variations in tissue pressure that allows fluid to move within the system and enhances lymph formation.
Aqua lymphatic therapy (AQL) is a form of water exercise researched and developed by Physiotherapist Dorit Tidah, a Casley-Smith International instructor from Israel. The method uses specific movements and exercises in the water to facilitate lymph drainage. Participants are measured before and after each session.
