What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)?

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a light touch massage that helps the natural drainage of lymph fluid and production of white blood cells. The lymphatic system is designed to filter waste and toxins that are too big to be picked up by the venous system. Once toxins are eliminated the body is able to use its energy more efficiently. Benefits of MLD include reduced swelling, boosted immunity, help fight infection, migraine/sinus relief, bloating, reduce water retention.

  • What is the lymphatic system?
    The lymphatic system is a superficial and deep system within the body that filters waste that is too big to be processed by the venous system, such as proteins, long chain fatty acids, cell fragments, and water. The lymph fluid also contains white blood cells that circulate throughout the body to help fight infections.
