The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), sometimes called manual lymphatic therapy, uses light touch to move excess lymph and fluid out of the tissues and back into the lymphatic vessels. Although often referred to as a type of massage, MLD is very different from other traditional forms of massages that rely on deep and rigorous kneading and rubbing. MLD is much gentler and highly relaxing. One session of MLD typically takes about 30-45 minutes and is often skillfully complemented with cranio-sacral bodywork.
