Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a precise and light pressure massage therapy technique that works on the lymphatic vessels.  This gentle technique rhythmically stimulates and enhances the flow of lymph throughout the body by a manual stretching and release of the skin as performed by skilled and certified therapists.  Clients find the technique soothing and relaxing with no side effects.

 

Some of the benefits are:

  • The removal of metabolic wastes, toxins, bacteria and foreign substances from the tissues by increasing lymph flow.

  • Decreased pain.

  • Reduced stress.

  • Enhances the function of the immune system.

  • Helps the body to heal quickly from injury and surgery.

  • Reduces edema.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How should I prepare for my first treatment?

What should I expect from my first massage treatment?

Please arrive 10 -15 minutes before your first appointment.  This will allow time to discuss your health history and customize a treatment plan for your current needs.  Arriving on time means we get you on the table on time so you get the hands on work you booked in for.  After the intake, the technique and approach will be explained and we will begin your massage. We will communicate throughout the massage to make sure you are comfortable with the pressure.
