Human touch has a profound benefit both mentally and physically on the recipient, especially those suffering through significant health issues such as cancer.  I have found that manual lymph drainage relaxes both mind and body to further facilitate the healing process, reduce stress, and promote a sense of regaining one’s own power to face daily challenges. 


Manual lymph drainage (MLD) is a technique for treatment of lymphedema, an accumulation of fluid that can occur after lymph nodes are removed during surgery, most often after mastectomy for breast cancer.  Manual lymphatic drainage uses light, repetitive skin stretching movement that is very specific: the skin is stretched in a specific direction and sequence to help speed the rate at which the lymphatic fluid reaches the appropriate lymph node groups for filtration and decongestion of the tissues.
