Our lymphatic system is very important for immunity. Manual lymph drainage is a soothing medical massage that decongests the connective tissue and balances the nervous system.

The Benefits of MLD:

  • Relaxes: sympathetic nervous system, reducing stress & anxiety
  • Strengthens: supports the immune system
  • Speeds: healing time from injuries, surgery, & chronic conditions
  • Reduces: swelling & edema, fluid retention during pregnancy & menstrual cycle
