Who can MLD benefit?

Anyone can benefit from Manual Lymph Drainage. Your lymphatic system is like a network of pipes which filter and clean out debris to keep the body (and mind) healthy. When the system is clogged or not functioning properly, eventually it backs up and affects other systems. Manual Lymph Drainage reduces inflammation, and especially helps those seeking relief from the side effects of medical procedures or cancer treatments. 

It is important to keep in mind that even though this technique is important for those living with some sort of ailment, Manual Lymph Drainage benefits everyone. It is inevitable for there to be some sort of toxin buildup or inflammation in our systems, whether it is physically present or not. Manual Lymph Drainage is the most effective way to cleanse and reset the system.
