Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage is available at Encompass HealthCare and Wound Medicine in West Bloomfield, Michigan in our outpatient office so that you don’t have to go to the hospital.

Our outpatient facility is located on the border of West Bloomfield, Walled Lake and Commerce township in the Lakes Medical Building and is convenient to most Oakland, Wayne, and Macomb county cities.

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a treatment for vein problems like lymphedema and venous insufficiency. MLD is a type of gentle massage that encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart.

Lymphedema

Manual lymphatic drainage helps the lymph fluid return back into its native vein or lymph vessels, using a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.

Certain MLD strokes are designed to manipulate lymph vessels located in the subcutaneous tissues of larger body surfaces, such as the trunk while other techniques are better suited to be applied on contoured surfaces, such as the extremities.

Our MLD specialist Julia is certified and trained in this technique and we offer this in our comfortable, outpatient office.
