Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) is a gentle manual technique that improves the flow of the lymph, which can then decrease edema. LDT also calms inflammation, promotes healthy digestion, lowers blood pressure, and provides a relaxation effect that reduces the stress response.
LDT is a soothing treatment great for nearly anyone, plus it is medically indicated to treat lymphedema, which is the prolonged swelling seen after damage to the lymph nodes or lymphatic system. We have had great success in reducing edemas from trauma and surgery, plus we help people with lymphedema manage their care by reducing the edema itself and reducing the discomfort and heaviness that often accompanies lymphedema.
If you are unsure if LDT is right for you, give us a call and we’ll see if LDT is indicated for your swelling or edema. LDT is such a gentle and relaxing treatment, it’s beneficial for almost anybody.
