Lymphatic drainage (MLD)
This is a gentle superficial technique which involves using direction specific massage to increase lymphatic flow and therefore enhance detoxification. MLD is great for reducing swelling during the acute injury phase and can reduce congestion/swelling post surgery or after removal of lymph nodes.
