MLD (Clinical Manual Lymphatic Drainage) – Dr Alison Merrick

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle and deceptively powerful clinical lymphatic massage that can stimulate lymphatic flow by 10-50 times its normal physiological speed. In doing so it has profound decongestive, detoxifying and anti-inflammatory effects on the body as well as enhancing immune function and cellular healing. Therefore, its clinical effects are many, reducing congestion, pain, bruising, inflammation and swelling, enhancing local immunity, tissue healing processes and tissue/organ detoxification.
CDT (Combined Decongestive Therapy) is also available and is a specialist combination of MLD, compression, exercise and skin care and is the gold standard Best Practice Protocol for the treatment/management of lymphoedema according to NICE guidelines.
