Manual Lymphatic Massage is a gentle modality which helps the natural drainage of lymphatic fluid using light strokes, gentle skin stretching, and a pumping action.  The lymphatic system, unlike the circulatory system, does not have a pump, therefore, when it is compromised, lymph fluid backs up. MLD is a specialized massage that helps redirect the fluid.

MLD which is most often used for people who have had lymph nodes removed through surgery or radiated with cancer treatments.

MLD massage can help alleviate symptoms of headaches, hypertension, pain, edema, among many other ailments.
