Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a gentle, rhythmic and non-invasive massage technique that focuses on improving the function of the lymphatic system by moving lymphatic fluid from the body’s tissues into the lymphatic vessels. It is soothing and calming and can provide pain relief and stress reduction as well as facilitating detoxification through the body.
MLD enhances lymph formation and promotes drainage within the superficial and deep systems of the lymph vascular network. It can effectively reduce traumatic and post-surgical edema, and can provide symptomatic relief of migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), stress, fatigue and more.
It was developed in the 1930’s by Drs. Estrid and Emil Vodder in Europe and since then has been well researched to show benefits to both healthy individuals and people with specific health challenges. Whether you are healthy and wanting to support your body or living with a health challenge, MLD is a wonderful modality to work with.
45, 60 and 90 minutes : $80*, $95* and $130*
The 45 minute session is perfect for concentrating on one specific area, like the head and neck. The 60 minute session will allow more time for a couple specific areas. The 90 minute session is helpful for targeting a few areas, and although it takes about 2.5 hours to work on the entire body, a 90 minute session is best for getting more of a full body approach with this modality.
