Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a massage technique that promotes the natural drainage of excess lymph out of a swollen limb and into the circulatory system. It is mainly used to treat lymphedema, and other conditions such as fibromyalgia. MLD redirects lymph away from compromised lymph nodes to areas that are draining normally. MLD can help to reduce swelling and improve circulation. A properly functioning lymphatic system is essential for overall health.
