Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a light touch therapy used to stimulate the body's Lymphatic System.
It is a natural approach to staying well,
preparing the body for adversity and
healing after a disruption in physical health.
An ultrasound showed inflamed lymph nodes near her 10-year old daughter's appendix. Instead of accepting "that it would pass", she sought out relief for her daughter's excruciating pain through MLD:
"Megan made my daughter feel comfortable right away with her encouraging words and the relaxed atmosphere. The therapy provided much more pain relief than medicine, and we finally felt hope that the pain would diminish. Sure enough, my daughter's pain lessened greatly in intensity, allowing her the best night's sleep she had had in five days. We are extremely grateful for Megan and the relief the therapy provided.

MLD moves lymph around damaged or missing lymph nodes (like those removed during a masectomy). Combined with a custom compression garment, MLD can keep swelling of a limb at bay.
Before surgery, MLD can prepare the lymphatic system to to respond to surgical disruption.
After surgery, MLD can optimize the efficiency of the lymph system as it responds to a surgical disruption.
The lymphatic system is the body's "clean-up-the-mess" system. Getting it up and moving will facilitate a faster, easier recovery with less bruising and scarring.
MLD can support the body in its desire to stay well.
Maintenance of the lymphatic system on a regular basis will move metabolic waste, optimize healing from the body's normal wear and tear and promote skin health.
MLD can reduce swelling during pregnancy, when the Lymphatic System is challenged. It reduces the body's risk of creating stretch marks, and can help prepare for, or recover from a Cesarean birth.
