Spa Massage


Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialised treatment that uses gentle techniques to improve the flow of lymphatic fluid. The pressure used is very light, unlike regular massage, which calms the nervous system and can be deeply relaxing. MLD helps to reduce excess fluid/swelling, speed up recovery from surgery or injury and also assists in detoxification.


  • Reduces swelling & water retention (also in pregnancy)

  • Speeds up recovery post-surgery

  • Reduces pain

  • Reduces digestive discomfort (constipation & bloating)

  • Enhances the immune system

  • Accelerates metabolism

  • Improves blood and lymph circulation

  • Improves recovery from sports

  • Reduces the appearance of cellulite

  • Promotes relaxation

Whether it be for general swelling or to recover from surgery, MLD can help. If you are unsure please call us on 0161 706 0895 to discuss.
