Lymphatic drainage is an important part of effective management of lymphoedema. It’s a form of massage that helps stimulate the lymphatic system and encourages the flow of lymph fluid. This encourages lymph to drain out of the affected area into an area that drains normally.
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a specialised massage technique that should only be practised by trained therapists. All our MLD therapists have been specifically trained. The sessions are normally one hour and your therapist will decide the most effective management plan for you.
MLD is not painful and helps to reduce the negative effects of lymph build-up and the treatment is applied through normal loose clothing.
