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

Dr. Lauren always makes me feel very comfortable, and that I’m being heard. She is thorough, and never rushes you. It’s clear that she cares just as much about the health of her patients as the patients themselves do.
