This non-invasive, painless and very effective therapy for lymphedema
and other related conditions has been used in Europe successfully for
decades and is now becoming widely recognized in the United States. The

collectors. MLD re-routes the lymph flow around the blocked areas into
more centrally located lymph vessels that eventually drain into the venous

Massage was developed in the 1700's in Sweden, it has long been
thought of as the first organized and systematic method of modern massage
therapy in the west. The specific strokes and manipulations of Swedish
massage are each conceived as having definite therapeutic benefits. The
goal of Swedish massage is to return oxygen and remove and toxins from
the extremities. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular
strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic
wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches
the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish Massage
also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves
at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and
is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has many
specific medical uses.
Massage focuses on the manipulation of the body's soft tissue
to promote a balanced state of health. Specific strokes such as effleurage,
petrissage, friction and stretching are taught by some of the finest Western
bodywork instructors in the field of complementary medicine.

useful in improving circulation and draining lymphatic tissue, and it
is beneficial in healing sports injuries, reducing stress and alleviating
aches and pains, muscular stiffness, spasms and other injuries.
