MLD (Manual lymphatic drainage) can be extremely beneficial to all types of surgery. MLD is a very gentle skin technique massage which stimulates & improves the efficiency of the lymphatic system which is our body’s waste disposal system. This stimulation increases the removal of waste, fluid & toxins from the body’s tissues thus improving normal healthy function.
