(MLD) is a type of gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, even though MLD is extremely light work, it is the most efficient way to reduce swelling and bruising. It is a specialized, advanced bodywork modality that uses a gentle, rotating, pumping motion that moves the lymph fluid without increasing the blood circulation.
Treatments are recommended post-op, which can start one week after surgery (with physician approval). Trauma (surgery) can depress the function of the lymphatic system. As such, MLD is used to stimulate temporary rerouting of lymph to functional vessels and nodes to reduce swelling. The work achieves a wide variety of benefits, but the most significant in post-op situations is the reduction of pain, bruising and edema. Plastic Surgery, C-Section, Knee Surgery,
