Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
Lymphoedema is a chronic swelling that occurs when lymph fluid does not drain away from the tissues beneath the skin. Lymphoedema may develop after surgery or radiotherapy to treat cancer. Although Lymphoedema may develop in any part of the body, it often presents in a limb. It may occur immediately after treatment or many years later as a result of infection or trauma.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a very gentle, specialized type of massage which is designed to improve the functioning of the lymphatic system.
