What is DMT? DMT is the systemic kneading, stroking and pressure point therapy applied over the entire body. DMT deals with nerves, muscles, bones, blood and the lymphatic system. Deep Muscle Therapists are taught to work the underlying deep muscles that are attached to the bone. To give a DMT is one of the most beautiful experiences you can give. It is an endless exploration of another body and creates a magnificent journey into your own physical world. Treatments usually take 1 to 1 ½ hours to do.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
What is MLD? MLD deals with the lymph-vascular system. Lymph vessels are concerned with conveying excess fluids and edema, foreign particles and other material from the body's tissues and cells. This system works closely with white blood cells (known as lymphocytes) that are so essential to the body's defense against disease.
