"Why You Should Consider Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage: The Key Benefits"

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialized type of medical massage that stimulates the lymphatic flow and helps transport the lymph from swollen to non-swollen areas.  The lymphatic system is crucial for fluid regulation and balance, waste transportation, and immunity.  


In contrast to more traditional massage styles, MLD utilizes a much lighter touch and makes use of skin stretching techniques in a specific pattern. This allows stimulation of the lymphatic vessels to move the fluid where it should be going. In addition, no oil or lotion is used.  

Who can benefit from MLD?  The short answer would be EVERYONE!!  To be more specific, it can be useful for the following:  

  • Those diagnosed with lymphedema and/or lipidema 

  • Post mastectomy/lumpectomy management of swelling, scar tissue, and pain 

  • Reduce swelling and bloating 

  • Improve skin health 

  • Increase immune function 

  • Pre and post-surgical indications for orthopedic and cosmetic surgeries 

  • Detoxification 

  • Decrease pain 

  • Relaxation 

  • May improve symptoms of arthritis, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia 

  • Improves constipation 

  • Helps our Lyme patients detox during herxheimer reactions and decreases inflammation 

Who should I see for MLD? 

You should see a certified lymphatic therapist for any MLD sessions. I have my Bachelor of Science in Nursing through Marian University, and completed the Klose Lymphedema Therapy Certification Course with over 145 hours of education on Lymphedema therapies. I have been seeing fantastic results in our patient population and is getting very good feedback from them!
