Manual Lymphatic Drainage Q&A

What is a MLD?

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle approach to bodywork. It focuses on understanding the lymphatic system and its pathways to reroute lymph in case there has been restrictions via tension, damage due to injury or excess swelling post surgery. Excess lymph can be seen as swelling, though, there are subtle swelling and inflammation in our body that is unaddressed via a therapeutic massage that will be during an MLD treatment.


What Appointment Types Are There?

Our MLD specialist is trained in the Vodder technique and has learned other protocols to help with specific issues.

  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph in a regular session.

  • Post-Op Manual Lymphatic Drainage have a different set of criteria where shorter sessions are required the first two weeks after surgery if there are no complications or infections. We recommend a minimum of a 5 week plan twice/week.

  • Neuro Lymphatic Drainage is a specific protocol for degenerative neurological diseases that can help slow down the progression, helpful for those that have had brain surgery and/or concussions or have long haul brain fog due to COVID or chronic illness. One must be seen regularly to see results
