What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?

MLD is a form of massage that not only is profoundly relaxing but can assist in boosting the immune system, clear the skin, assist in the healing of bruising, wounds and burns, eliminate waste products and alleviate fluid retention such as tired puffy eyes and fluid retention due to pre-menstrual syndrome.

What can it help with?

MLD can also help in the treatment of both secondary and primary lymphedema, but also improves health by boosting the immune system. It has been used to treat skin conditions, relieve fluid congestion, and alleviate pain, aid relaxation and bruising and swelling following surgery. *Does not include cancer related lymphoma.
