Manual Lymphatic Drainage

If you’re looking for someone who performs Manual Lymphatic Drainage in Queens or Nassau County, remember that training and certification are important. Kathleen Vincent is both trained and certified in MLD to provide the needed results for her clients.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a gentle massage treatment technique that improves the activity of the lymph vessels. It is a natural, non-invasive way to remove excess fluid in the body. MLD also increases production of T-cells to boost immunity, speeds up the healing process, and cleanses the lymphatic system of debris. Studies have shown that including MLD in a massage treatment plan accelerates recovery and rehabilitation and improves aesthetic results after surgery. Many surgeons recommend MLD before and after surgery.

MLD can also be used effectively for pain control as well as to increase the lymph production, stimulating the intake and lymphatic loads into the lymphatic system and increasing venous return. 

The soothing effects of Manual Lymphatic Drainage decrease the sympathetic mode and promote the parasympathetic (relaxation) response. It helps break down fibrotic tissue (lymphostatic fibrosis), reduces swelling and serves as an analgesic, or pain reliever.
