What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?

Manual Lymphatic Drainage or MLD is a light, skin-stretching massage that helps promote the movement of lymphatic fluid. It should not be confused with a traditional massage. It stimulates lymph vessel contraction, facilitating drainage of the connective tissues and helps to drain the lymph back to the main circulation system. It also boots the immune system.


The skin is stretched in specific directions using hand movements to promote variations in interstitial pressure without the use of oils. Slow repetitive movements are used which incorporate a resting phase allowing the skin to return to its normal position.


 MLD is specifically focused on the lymph vessels to help the flow of lymphatic fluid. The therapy is applied to your unaffected areas first, making it possible for the fluid to move out of the affected area. MLD helps open the remaining functioning lymph collectors and move protein and fluid into them. It also helps speed up lymph fluid flow through the lymphatics.


The MLD technique was developed by Dr. Emil Vodder and his wife, Estrid in 1936 in Paris for the treatment of swollen lymph nodes.

What are the benefits of Manual Lymphatic Drainage?

The benefits of lymphatic drainage are extensive, mainly in the transport and removal of stagnant fluids, but it also:


  • Stimulates blood circulation and tissue regeneration
  • Increases lymphatic flow, promoting faster removal of excess interstitial fluid
  • Reduces swelling and water retention
  • Can improve the immune system due to the elimination of toxins
  • Drains local edema (swelling) and hematoma (bruise) developed  during surgery
  • Promotes body and mental relaxation

Satisfied client

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the treatment I had this morning.   Now I am back home my sense of smell and taste has transformed – it’s actually quite overwhelming.  I actually want to eat a hundred things just taste them (practically been without a sense of taste for two years!) Thank you to the therapist who did such an amazing number on me, I am so appreciative. I’ll see you next week – probably 5kg’s heavier! Many thanks indeed!”
