Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an advanced therapeutic method, proven to stimulate the lymphatic system.
Our Certified MLD therapists use gentle rhythmic movements which help to eliminate waste from the body, returning vital proteins to the blood stream, which is crucial to our health and well-being.
MLD can be extremely beneficial for cancer patients by restoring balance and reducing pain caused by inflammation, radiation or chemotherapy. In addition, MLD can be beneficial for post-traumatic injuries, to promote proper drainage of burns, wounds, stretch marks and wrinkles, as well as the reduction in the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and other autoimmune disorders.
