Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) uses gentle, rhythmic strokes to amplify the body's own fluid return and detoxification system. MLD stimulates the lymphatic system for a total sense of deep relaxation that helps to reduce insomnia and stress. The light rhythmical therapy encourages the lymphatic system to eliminate metabolic waste products, excess fluid, and bacteria while facilitating healing and supporting the immune system.  

           Benefits of MLD Include:
  • Promotion of immune health
  • Increased metabolic waste elimination 
  • Reduced Inflammation
  • Surgery Prep & Recovery (Pre & Post-Op)
  • Reduced Swelling
  • Improved nutrient delivery to tissues
  • Pain reduction
  • Improved scar tissue function
  • Induces deep relaxation

*This is a treatment, not a massage. The focus is on your lymphatic vessels, not your muscles. Scar tissue work, lymphatic taping and cupping may be incorporated into the session when appropriate or in the healing phase from surgery. 
*Discounts offered for lymphedema & cancer survivors at risk with physician approval.  Pre-purchased packages of 5 MLD sessions available.
