What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a technique that involves light massage to help reduce a build up of fluid/swelling. Gentle strokes are used in the direction of the heart to manually stimulate the lymphatic system and drain excess fluid back into the body. This can help decrease swelling and pain related to oedema.
