Stop Swelling Post-Surgical Complications Before It Happens with MLD

Massage, Massage Therapist
Reduce Swelling Swelling is the body’s natural way to respond to an injury or trauma. When the body senses an injury, it responds by rushing extra lymphatic fluid containing white bloods cells to the injured area.

Many physicians and surgeons are beginning to recognize that specialized massage techniques such as manual lymphatic drainage can…
