Roween’s most recent training was completed in October 2015 in Manual Lymph Drainage Massage (MLD massage); facilitated by Michelle Vassallo. MLD massage is a very specific technique (primarily through the timing, direction and pressure of the application) that assists the body to refresh and rejuvenate its fluid enabling it to establish resistance to all types of stress that our system is placed under by stimulating the immune system. It is not a muscular massage but essentially works above the muscle fascia as 70% of the lymphatic fluid is found here. MLD massage stimulates fluid circulation and elimination, assisting the body with detoxification. It encourages the lymphatic system to absorb and transport lymph more effectively. MLD massage also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system via the relaxation effect, reducing pain by sedating the sensory nerve endings. This in turn allows tight muscles to relax, inhibiting extreme muscle tone.
