Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a precision technique used to influence the flow of lymphatic fluid. As the body's cleansing system, lymph flows within its own circulatory system, transporting cellular wastes, fat, proteins, and dead cells, and plays a major part in maintaining the protein balance of the blood. A malfunctioning lymphatic system may cause fluid accumulation between loose connective tissue, causing body-part swelling known as lymphedema. It is a chronic condition, often disfiguring and unsightly, which may progressively worsen and is prone to infection if left untreated. MLD is a systematic means of preventing and treating lymphedema symptoms.
