The lymphatic system is a critical factor in our body's ability to detoxify and regenerate its tissues, filter out toxins and maintain healthy function of our immune system. Choose from one of the following areas of focus: neck & abdomen, neck & face or neck & legs.
This lymphatic massage can focus on over 60 conditions. If the lymphatic system fails or is impaired due to surgery, radiation, disease or trauma, swelling can occur in the interstitial spaces. Without proper drainage cells are exposed to an undernourished, toxic environment. MLD will help the body to heal more quickly from musculoskeletal injuries, pre & post surgical conditions, ear, nose & throat conditions, dermatological and chronic conditions and edema.
