Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a gentle and soothing bodywork that uses slow and rhythmic treatment. This treatment improves the function of Lymphatic System by activating the lymph nodes and following the specific pathways of lymphatic vessels in the body. This was designed by Dr's Emil and Estrid Vodder in Europe.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage technique is the most powerful and effective technique to rid edema. It is perform with very light pressure and rhythmic movement. It is directly on a dry skin with no lubricants. It has a pull and stretch effect . This techniques is performed effectively combined with diaphragmatic breathing. Clients report feeling relax, lighter, energized after their session.
If our Lymphatic system is working efficiently, we generally have full of energy and feeling healthy. When our Lymphatic System is congested, we will be prone to infections and colds, we get tired so easy and feeling foggy. we will also feel bloated and possible constipated.

Many plastic surgeons who are practicing surgery procedures noticed that patients returned to normalcy within 6 weeks - 12 weeks with MLD session 2/week versus 9-18 month w/o MLD treatment with possible Fibrosis later on.
MLD therapist are different but me personally, I like to see my my clients twice a week for 6-8 weeks and that is 12-16 sessions with client's complete compliance for MLD home care management that is specifically instructed to my client. Every session, varies. Pressures are updated depending the pliability of the tissue each visit.
MLD affects to our nervous system. This has an analgesic affect and very soothing. This is a great session for relaxation, pain relief, swelling reduction from sports injuries or post- surgical recovery.
