Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

Stimulation of the lymphatic system to promote healing

What is MLD?

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of massage based on preliminary encouraging the natural drainage of lymphatic fluid, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart.


Who can benefit?

MLD is often used post injury and surgery, particularly when swelling is slow to improve.

The lymph system depends on contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then to the lymph ducts. Manual lymphatic drainage uses much lighter pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.


Please contact the clinic to book an appointment. Prior to your appointment our therapist Michelle will contact you to make sure that you are suitable. Some medical conditions can limit the use of MLD, but this is rare.
