The lymphatic system is one of the key components of the immune system.
It’s primary function is the removal of toxins and waste from the body. Toxins can be anything from drugs we take regularly to manage our health, motor vehicle toxins, and natural inflammation produced by the body in response to surgery and simple cuts and bruises.
When the lymphatic system is working effectively you are better equipped to fight colds, resist allergens, reduce swelling, and experience an overall sense of well-being. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialized technique that should only be performed by a trained and certified lymphatic therapist (CMLDT or CLT) to stimulate flow of lymph.
This gentle technique is safe for almost everyone and is especially helpful to those dealing with lymphedema due to pregnancy, medical conditions or those who are post-operative.
