Lymphatic Drainage is a light touch therapy that encourages natural circulation of the lymph throughout the body. It stimulates the drainage of toxins in the tissues and redirects the excess fluid away from blocked areas, allowing it to drain into the veins. Patients undergoing cosmetic and/or reconstructive surgeries such as breast augmentation and/or breast reconstruction, liposuction, tummy tuck, mastectomy, face lift, back surgery, etc. benefit from MLD due to it increasing recovery time and boosting the immune system. This technique is also highly recommended for breast cancer survivors who have had lymph nodes removed and are experiencing edema. MLD helps to detoxify the body, combat against pain and disease, reduce tissue swelling and energize the body and mind.
