Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Our Lymphedema team of certified therapists provide state of the art care for lymphedema

The lymphatic system can become slow and doesn’t work at its best for different reasons, that may include whether a lack of muscular movement, poor diets, disease or infections. It may also be the result that the body does not eliminate its waste efficiently, causing a build-up as an edema, or water retention.

Manual lymphatic drainage is a technique designed to activate the lymph-vessel system, increasing the movement of excess fluid out of the tissue and allowing the lymph flow to transport waste products from the body.

How we treat

  • Bruising reduction. Cells transported by the lymph system are moved away 10 times faster with MLD. Bruises heal in a fraction of the time as well as using kinesiotaping techniques in combination with the MLD, allowing clients the ability to resume activities of daily living much faster.
  • Edema reduction. MLD redirects lymph fluid to collateral and viable pathways untouched by surgery to allow for accelerated drainage, as opposed to the slow trickle of tissue fluids in the operative site.
  • Pain management. As pressure of lymph fluid decreases around nerves, pain and discomfort are relieved and require less pain medication.
  • Scar-tissue prevention and fibrosis reduction. Lymph fluid left to build up below incisions or sitting in interstitial space can solidify, causing the formation of scar tissue and fibrotic tissue. These tissues are often felt as ball-like substances below the skin surface. MLD prevents lymph fluid build-up and solidification, for a seamless scar.
  • Infection prevention. Postsurgical MLD is important when considering that stagnating lymph fluid can become infectious material and warrant artificial drain insertion—which is painful, costly and time consuming.
