Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

I'm excited to announce that I have completed my certification in Manual Lymphatic Drainage! I am officially a certified MLD therapist!

Based on the techniques developed by Dr. Emil Vodder, Ph.D., MT., when skillfully applied, this therapeutic form of soft-tissue mobilization dramatically enhances lymph formation and promotes drainage within the superficial and deep systems of the lymph vascular network. MLD effectively reduces traumatic and post-surgical edema, and can provide symptomatic relief of migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), stress, fatigue, and more. MLD also induces general relaxation and detoxification.

MLD can be done exclusively as a whole body 90 minute massage, 20-30 minutes to address a specific target area, or incorporated into your 60 minute custom massage.
