What is It?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a medical modality that has been used for nearly a century in Europe to help circulate lymphatic fluid. The method was brought to the United States in the 1980’s by Dr. Lerner after his patients were going to Europe for relief from swelling following mastectomies. Originally invented by Dr. Vodder for sinusitis, research has since shown the lymphatic drainage is important for our entire body.
You will remain fully clothed while your Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapist provides a very gentle and rhythmic full body routine, Though the name implies Lymphatic Fluid is being drained from your body, this is not the case. There are no needles or ports. Instead, your therapist is helping to increase the rate at which your lymphatic fluid is circulating your body with the goal of increasing the natural process of elimination. Past clients have reported increased urination, sweating, and runny nose during the time between treatments.
Jordana was trained by one of the first massage therapists/physical therapy assistants hired by Dr. Lerner to learn and practice Lymphatic Drainage in the United States.

Frequency and Pricing
In order to fully benefit from lymphatic drainage, I need to see you for about 3-5 consecutive days. You will NOT achieve the results you wish for in one or two sessions. In more serious cases of Lymphedema we will need to see you daily until the measurements that we take during your appointments stop decreasing. You and your doctor should then decide if you need compression garments. Jordana is certified in standard measurement for medical grade compression garments.

Lymphatic Drainage for....
Multiple Sclerosis, Memory Disorders, Parkinson's, ALS, etc...
Unlike blood which is pumped throughout the body by the heart, our lymphatic fluid has no pump to keep a constant, healthy flow. The lymph is moved along with help from muscle contractions during exercise. You can help lymph flow by receiving lymphatic drainage sessions and drinking plenty of water.
