Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a very gentle skin technique that directly stimulates the superficial lymph vessels. An individualized protocol is used to increase the flow of lymph and encourage drainage in swollen or congested areas. MLD is most often used to prevent or treat lymphedema. Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT) is a combination of MLD, compression therapy, exercise and skin care. Indications for MLD and CDT therapy are lymphedema, phlebedema, lipedema, traumatic edema, postsurgical edema, arthropathy, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, rheumatic diseases.
