Lymphedema/Lymphatic Care

Lymphedema is an abnormal swelling occurring in a body part usually resulting from injury to the lymphatic system, or from the removal of lymph nodes.  It is a chronic condition requiring first an intensive phase of bandaging and manual lymph drainage (MLD), and a second, ongoing, maintenance phase involving the use of compression garments and regular MLD sessions. Lymphatic massage is very gentle to encourage relaxation and the draining of fluids that accumulate in the body.
