Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a therapy which is designed to improve the functioning of the lymphatic system. This is achieved through gentle rhythmical movements of the skin which stimulate the contraction of the lymphatic vessels. It is a key treatment for lymphoedema, venous oedema and leg ulcers, and promotes recovery from wounds, burns and surgery.
