Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of gentle massage that encourages the natural drainage of the lymph system, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. MLD uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow. These services are done by a Registered Massage Therapist and are covered by extended health benefits.
