Manual lymphatic drainage


Not technically “massage,” manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a gentle bodywork technique that promotes the absorption of inter-cellular fluid. Using light strokes and focusing on the skin rather than the muscles. MLD is a major component of complete decongestive therapy (CDT), the treatment for lymphedema. Further details on how manual lymphatic drainage may benefit you can be discussed with your therapist.
