Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a hands on therapy in which the practitioner uses specialized and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to move the skin in the direction of lymph flow. This stimulates the lymphatic vessels, which remove waste products from your tissues and carry substances vital to the immune system.
MLD can be both preventative and corrective. It is an important part of the treatment and control of lymphedema. It can also help with conditions associated with poor venous circulation, and has an excellent effect both pre and post-surgery. MLD promotes the healing of wounds and burns.
