Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) uses a range of specialized and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to move the lymph fluid in the direction of the lymph pathways.  It is a technique based on gentle, rhythmic movements that mimic the rhythm of the body’s lymphatic system. MLD is a gentle manual technique that stimulates a malfunctioning or fatigued lymphatic system. Keeping the lymphatic system in good condition is imperative for promoting good health, and for restoring good health when the system has been compromised through events such as surgery, injury or illness.
