Lymphatic drainage massage, or manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a form of massage that uses gentle, non-invasive techniques to relieve swelling and facilitate drainage of fluid.
MLD can reduce fluid buildup (edema), promote immune function and encourage relaxation in the body. Since the lymph vessels that MLD targets are close to the surface of the skin, techniques are very gentle and use light pressure.
Our registered massage therapist, Natalija Filinova, is certified in the Dr. Vodder method of MLD. She has used MLD to treat a number of conditions, include post-surgical conditions, lymphedema, and many acute orthopaedic injuries.
