Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a massage technique that stimulates increased flow of your lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system is made up of vessels that carry fluid containing lymphocytes. MLD promotes increased healthy lymphocytes (type of white blood cells) throughout the body which improves wellness, immunity and healing. Your lymphatic system is also a drain for cellular debris and if the system gets backed up or sluggish or slows then you are at a higher risk for poor immunity and inflammation. Both of these cause illness.
For symptoms of Chronic Fatigue, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Fibromyalgia and long COVID-19, the Perrin Technique of MLD is best used.
INDICATIONS FOR MLD
Immunity & Wellness
MLD creates healthy flow of lymph fluid throughout your body. Improving mobility, circulation of nutrients, drainage of toxins and reduction in swelling. By doing MLD, you are helping your body stay in tip top shape.
When you have a sluggish lymph flow your body has difficulty eliminating toxins. Toxins can get stuck under your skin causing large breakouts of acne. Face treatments with lymphatic drainage can help to “unstick” the toxins.
Edema & Facial Puffiness

Post Concussion Syndrome
In 2015, Dr. Kipnis at that University of Virginia discovered lymphatic vessels in the brain leading to indications for MLD. Post concussion syndrome can be debilitating with symptoms of headaches, dizziness, fatigue and irritability.
Patients who suffer from the debilitating pain from trigeminal neuralgia can find that MLD decreases the intensity and frequency of flares.
Patients have found improvement in memory with MLD by decreasing the inflammatory response in the lymph system. This can decrease Alzheimer's disease.
Like Trigeminal Neuralgia pain, Migraines are often caused by inflammation and spasming of nerves and blood vessels. MLD helps patients improve their quality of life with decrease in intensity and frequency of flares.
Pre and Post Surgery
We recommend to start MLD prior to a planned surgery and then shortly after surgery for best results in surgical healing, decreased post surgical pain and faster scar healing. Many see they have less bruising after surgery when they follow the MLD Pre and Post op protocols.
Regular MLD helps to decrease inflammation which is one of the main reasons for chronic pain. Pair it with an anti-inflammation infusion for optimal effects.
Sinusitis, Seasonal Allergies
MLD allows healthy drainage of cellular debris which then decreases inflammation that causes sinus swelling and reaction. Face MLD will assist with sinus drainage decreasing the facial swelling brought on by allergies.
