What is Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)? (Registered Massage Therapy)

This is a gentle, rhythmic massage technique that has a profound effect on the lymphatic system. The detoxification and decongestion effects allow the body to heal and can induce deep relaxation and reduce pain.

Indications for MLD:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Poor circulation and swelling
  • Lymphatic support for those at risk of lymphedema (lymph nodes removed)
  • Injury recovery (strains/sprains)
  • Sinus congestion
  • Early treatment of whiplash
  • Pre/post surgery
  • Stress reduction and ‘calming the nerves’
  • Overall well-being and immune function
