Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
MLD is a type of gentle massage which encourages  the natural drainage of lymph.  The lymphatic system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels and the movement of skeletal muscle to propel  lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then beyond to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic movements to stimulate lymph flow.  MLD is beneficial for lymphedema management.
