Activate your Lymphatic System with a Certified & Trained Therapist
Lymphatic massage, also known as Manual Lymphatic Drainage Technique (MLD) uses soft rhythmic strokes that lightly stretch the skin and connective tissue, thus creating a gentle pumping action increasing lymphatic flow and stimulating lymph nodes, and vessels. Lymph fluid and toxins from areas of swelling will move to a healthier portion of the lymphatic system to be transported away and out of the body.
MLD for Oncology and Post-Surgical care concentrates on creating healthy pathways for Lymph flow after lymph node removal or surgical disruption of the body. Education for home care is an essential element of this process.

Does Lymphatic massage hurt?
No, Lymphatic massage uses light touch to enhance the flow of lymph fluid in the body. The lymph system is primarily located under the skin layer of the body, so we do not need deep pressure to affect the system. Occasionally, a firmer touch will be used in an area of increased congestion. Your therapist will alert you when this is necessary
Do I need a Doctor’s Order for MLD?
Your Primary Care or Specialist Physician may prescribe MLD in your treatment course; however, you may schedule your session without an order. Care from your therapist will not be different with or without a written doctor’s order.
