Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

Lymphatic Drainage Massage, also known as Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), is the most complete method of moving lymphatic fluid. Although the majority of massage techniques are known to stimulate lymph movement, the gentle, rhythmic and precise movements of MLD have been created to promote the elimination of interstitial fluid from body tissues and speed up the circulation of lymph within the Lymphatic Vascular System and should not be confused with a traditional massage.

MLD can be used as a whole-body treatment or localized to a particular area. Depending on the part of the body being handled, your trained therapist will utilize a combination of specific light handed or dry brush strokes, taps, and skin stretching movements to stimulate your body to encourage the movement of fluid away from the swollen area.

Post-Surgery/Lipo Benefits include but are not limited to the reduction of pain, swelling and bruising, and scar tissue, infection prevention and helps to speed up recovery times. 

General Benefits MLD is an ally in cleansing the body’s tissues of metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria, large protein molecules and toxins.  A sluggish lymphatic system increases the chance of chronic illness and disease.  Scientific studies have proven that the immune system is supported and even boosted as a result of receiving regular MLD treatments. MLD helps with reduction in edemas (swelling) and lymphedemas of various origins, detoxification of the body, anti-aging effects, relief of numerous chronic and subacute inflammations, including sinusitis, bronchitis and otitis, reduction in the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, deep relaxation to aid insomnia, stress, loss of vitality and loss of memory, alleviation of adiposis and cellulite tissue. 

MLD is very effective in countering the body’s natural inflammatory response following soft tissue traumas such as the following:

  • Post-Lipo
  • BBL
  • Cosmetic, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
  • Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck
  • Sprains/Fractures
