Manual Lymphatic Drainage
MLD is a gentle manual treatment which improves the function of the lymphatic system throughout the body. MLD is also an effective treatment for post-surgical swelling, post-traumatic edema (as with sports injuries), migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other conditions involving edema. For lymphedema patients, MLD is only 1 out of 4 parts of the treatment and is not intended to treat the chronic swelling by its self. Please book a CDT consultation if you are dealing with chronic swelling or major conditions causing swelling into your limbs.
